Disciplined in Sophisticated Defense and Insurance Litigation

Subrogation & Recovery

Butler’s Subrogation/Recovery Department handles complex property and casualty losses of all types. Our Subrogation attorneys specialize in and devote their entire practice to Subrogation, working as true partners with our clients. For some of our clients, Butler coordinates Large Loss Recovery Programs, typically throughout the Southeastern United States, but for several clients, we work all across North America and beyond.

A key feature of our practice is early involvement in the claim investigation. We make ourselves immediately available to our clients as their “first call” when they learn of a new claim, even before any determination of recovery potential. Our experience lets us accurately anticipate what our clients need at every step of the way, and makes our clients’ recovery job easier. That includes appropriate reporting on files and processing claims as our clients may require. But most importantly, it allows us to better manage the expenses that are invested in subrogation claims, so that money is properly invested in claims with real recovery potential and not wasted in claims that do not have recovery potential. While we handle most cases on a contingency fee basis, we are always willing to consider alternative fee arrangements.

Our experience and singular focus gives us the opportunity to share what we’ve learned with our clients. Our Subrogation attorneys routinely speak to the national professional associations that have an interest in Subrogation.

These include:

  • The National Association Of Subrogation Professionals (NASP)
  • Property & Liability Resource Bureau (PLRB)
  • The Defense Research Institute (DRI)
  • The Loss Executives Association (LEA)

In addition, our clients frequently ask us to conduct in-house training sessions with front line adjusters and recovery personnel. We believe that sharing what we’ve learned is one of the best ways for us to serve as “partners” with our clients, and to cultivate mutual trust and respect.
