Insurance Disputes


Gallagher & Kennedy has extensive experience representing both insurance companies and insured individuals and businesses in coverage disputes.

In our representation of individuals and business, we evaluate claims to determine whether there is insurance coverage and whether the client’s insurer has complied with its good faith obligations.  On several occasions, after the client’s insurer has initially denied coverage or issued a reservation of rights, our attorneys have successfully persuaded the insurer to agree to indemnify or withdraw its reservation. We also have a success-filled track record representing individuals and businesses in arbitration and lawsuits against their insurance companies for breach of contract or bad faith conduct.

Our attorneys also have significant experience defending insurance companies against breach of contract actions and bad faith claims brought by individuals as well as class action plaintiffs.  The team’s ability to represent carriers in these high-stakes cases is enhanced by their knowledge and familiarity with insurance underwriting and claims-handling practices as well as the complex case law governing permissible assignments of claims against insurers.
