Insurance Coverage and Defense
King & Jurgens has a significant insurance practice involving the representation of insurers and their insureds in a wide range of matters. Our advices are sought directly by insurers, via insurer third party administrators, and by insureds with self-insured retention agreements. The firm provides coverage advices and related representation in coverage litigation, including bad faith claims, extra contractual liability issues and class actions. We also have vast experience representing insurers in all manner of casualty and property disputes, from the common to the complex.
The firm has long and close business relationships with its insurance clients. We not only handle individual claims in a smart and diligent manner, but work with our clients to develop strategies that reflect their broader, enterprise-wide goals.
