Severson & Werson specializes in representing primary and excess insurers in all phases of litigated disputes – first and third party – including pre-litigation activities, declaratory relief actions, and lawsuits alleging bad faith. We successfully obtain positive outcomes for carrier clients through dispositive motion practice, trial, and on appeal. Our group offers experience with numerous risks including:

  • Commercial General Liability – Coverage Side A and B Claims
  • Excess Liability
  • Professional Liability
  • Directors and Officers
  • Public Entities
  • Contractor’s Liability
  • Environmental Pollution
  • Cyber Security / Privacy Liability

Our team knows that risk and uncertainty frequently abound in coverage litigation. Our specialists work closely with clients to develop the facts and the law in order to find the quickest and most effective path toward disposition or resolution. We have the knowledge and experience to get the job done.

When coverage presents a close question, and even when it doesn’t, policyholders frequently seek leverage by raising the specter of bad faith claims practices. When this occurs, Severson & Werson’s Insurance Coverage Litigation team provides the necessary experience and confidence in the law to mitigate against any prejudice.

Our Insurance Practice Group is also attuned to determining whether the potential liabilities (cost and risk) outweigh the benefits of litigation (obtaining certainty and finality). We are experts in both negotiation and in positioning cases for favorable resolution.

Whether you are focused on the long-game or seeking to obtain leverage for an early resolution, put our experience to the test.
