Disciplined in Sophisticated Defense and Insurance Litigation
 
 

CONSTRUCTION

Our construction lawyers are prepared to handle any aspect of litigation, from initial contract and bid proposals, to material failures and construction defects. 

JASON SEITZ, TAMPA
DENISE ANDERSON, TAMPA

 

SUBROGATION

One of our great strengths is large loss subrogation and recovery.  We have access to prime experts in many fields, and we, ourselves, put tremendous time and effort into understanding the scientific and engineering side of every case.

JESSICA SKARIN, DALLAS
PETER VOGT, CHARLOTTE

 

FIRST-PARTY COVERAGE

 As the law and the insurance industry have evolved, we’ve stayed at the forefront, generating new strategies to protect our clients’ interests, and adding new talent to execute those strategies. 

TIMOTHY ENGELBRECHT, TAMPA
TRACY JURGUS, MIAMI

 

APPELLATE

As we litigate a case in the trial court, we are always mindful of the outlook on appeal. We can handle all matters in the higher courts, state and federal, including the United States Supreme Court.

MATTHEW LAVISKY, TAMPA
MIHAELA CABULEA, TAMPA

 

CASUALTY DEFENSE

Liability exposure is as broad as human endeavor.  Our casualty defense practice encompasses that vast field.  We'll promptly evaluate the case and plan the best course, be it settlement, mediation, arbitration or trial.  Then we’ll execute.

CORY PERSON, TAMPA
CAROLINE ADAMS, TAMPA

 

EXTRA-CONTRACTUAL

We have the experience and resources to defend high exposure, “bet-the-company” suits.  These include actions for first and third party “bad-faith,” and all manner of damages in excess of insurance policy limits.  In such matters, we believe ourselves to be preeminent.

JONATHAN BARGER, CHICAGO
HUDSON JONES, TAMPA
 

 

INSURANCE COVERAGE

Opinion letters to insurers,  and declaratory actions, all require close analysis of complex issues such as choice of law. The effect of self-insured retention on duties of insurer and insured, public policy considerations, and so on. 

ANDREW WATSON, CHARLOTTE
