Representative experience:

  • Representing a construction contractor against an insurer for failing to defend the insured for construction defects that were covered under the insurance policy.   The prosecution of the suit involved aggressive depositions of claims adjusters and representatives of the insurer with the duty to defend is established following contentious summary judgment practice.  The suit ultimately settled for defense costs and attorney’s fees for bad faith.
  • Representing national insurers in numerous legacy claims, construction claims, and Chinese Drywall litigation.
