Insurance

Arnstein & Lehr’s attorneys counsel many business and individual clients who use insurance as a tool to manage their risks of fortuitous loss.  We help our clients assess their risks and determine their risk management strategies.   When those strategies call for insurance, we can help structure insurance programs that best meet the client’s objectives.  Where necessary, we can assist with the development of captive and alternative risk management approaches, draft manuscript policies, and work with insurance brokers to locate available coverages.

If a loss occurs or a claim is made, Arnstein & Lehr LLP often represents clients in obtaining coverage under their policies, negotiating, settling and if necessary litigating first-party coverages like property, surety, and life and health insurance, and third-party coverage such as liability insurance, as well as pursuing subrogation rights.  Our attorneys have successfully litigated virtually all aspects of insurance coverage in both federal and state courts and at the trial and appellate levels, as well as before arbitration and mediation panels and at the administrative and internal levels.

Arnstein & Lehr LLP also has specialized expertise in the regulation and management of insurance companies, and especially with troubled or insolvent insurance companies.  Arnstein & Lehr LLP attorneys have represented many insureds, claimants, receivers and reinsurers involved with such companies.  In addition, we advise insurers, brokers, and regulators regarding a range of regulatory and financial issues, including market conduct, policy drafting and approval, mergers and acquisitions, and reinsurance.
