Insurance Coverage and Bad Faith Litigation

Copeland, Stair, Valz & Lovell believes effective insurance coverage advocacy requires not only expertise regarding a policy’s terms but also real world experience with the reaction of courts to those same arguments. Our attorneys are unique in that they see a multi-faceted view of coverage and bad faith litigation.  In addition to advising on coverage and bad faith matters, the attorneys on our team also regularly try tort case.  Our commitment to seeing the issues from all viewpoints sets us apart from our competitors.

Routinely, we are brought in as appellate counsel following unfavorable results in the trial court in an attempt to refocus the issues. In addition to oral and written coverage opinions, we aggressively pursue declaratory judgment actions in appropriate cases. We also provide carrier clients with independent counsel on settlement negotiations and allocation issues in cases with potential extra-contractual exposure.  This includes strategizing about responses to time-limited demands and the risks associated therewith.

Advising our insurer clients on potential extra-contractual exposure is one of the hallmarks of our firm. Often, we are brought in to advise a carrier the moment a time-demand is sent.  From that point forward, we advise the carrier throughout the tort litigation and then defend them in the event a bad faith suit is filed.  We have a proven track record of taking on the biggest cases and delivering results for the client.

Together, our team takes a comprehensive approach to defending carriers in coverage and bad faith litigation.  In addition to our courtroom experience, we frequently lecture and roundtable with professionals from other jurisdictions to ensure we keep apprised of trends in the industry.  Our efforts have been rewarded not just with continued growth in these practice areas but also with practice group members being recognized as Super Lawyers and Rising Stars in the insurance coverage and bad faith arenas.
