Lawyers in Hand Arendallís Insurance Coverage Practice Team provide a broad range of services to businesses and insurers on insurance coverage matters. Our goal is to secure efficient and effective resolutions of insurance coverage questions. Pre-suit, our lawyers supply guidance on clientsí rights and responsibilities through advice and formal opinion letters. If litigation or arbitration is necessary, we have extensive experience in prosecuting declaratory judgment actions and pursing interventions in underlying suits on issues such as intentional/criminal acts or punitive damage exclusions. Our firm has litigated many large commercial property loss claims. We regularly handle ensuing suits over agentís and brokerís conduct, claims handling conduct, and bad faith failure to settle. Hand Arendall defends numerous companies accused of breaching their insurance contracts and bad faith failure to pay or to properly investigate claims. This work covers the entire spectrum of policies and coverages ranging from commercial general liability to environmental to business interruption to life and disability. Our Practice Team has experience in mass natural disaster casualty claims, including policy and claim file review and advice, case handling plan development, witness interview and preparation, and deposition representation. We have regularly handled appeals of coverage cases across the insurance spectrum in state and federal courts, including cases on occurrences/intentional acts, completed operations, work-product exclusions, forcible entry conditions, ripeness of bad faith claims, additional insured demands, contracts to procure insurance, constitutionality of punitive damages, and many other issues.
