Often in today’s sophisticated insurance environment, litigation brings about insurance coverage issues. By addressing these issues at the beginning of every claim, Perez Morris works to minimize exposure to its insurance carrier clients through coverage counsel analysis; providing options for coverage consideration in the context of prevailing state and/or federal caselaw in the applicable jurisdiction(s). Although most coverage issues can be resolved through pre-litigation communication, our attorneys are experienced in pursuing and defending necessary declaratory judgment actions if such discussions should prove unsuccessful. Ultimately, we strive to identify the relevant insurance coverage issues presented by a claim, advise our carrier client of all meaningful options available to resolve the issue, and execute client decisions towards a satisfactory handling and efficient closure of the matter.
Perez Morris has the insurance defense experience to understand the various jurisdictional characteristics across the U.S. that may influence litigation as to how venue and prevailing caselaw considerations may impact any given matter. With access to state-of-the-art technology for litigation and trial resources, we are able to advise our clients on the most recent insurance coverage trends as well as caselaw and industry/landscape developments of which they need to be aware to make the most informed coverage determinations.
