The right of subrogation is specified in many insurance contracts and it is often recognized by common law. We have handled subrogation for many domestic and international insurers in litigation and prior to litigation.
First-Party & Bad-Faith Defense
First-party claims are stated when an insured seeks recovery for its own loss. We help insurers evaluate coverage issues during the claims process.
The duty to defend hinges on policy language that specifies the agreement between the insured and the insurer. Insurers must defend their insured if a plaintiff’s factual allegations possibly support a covered claim.

Our corporate practice represents a wide range of clients, including international companies, closely held domestic conglomerates, multi-generational family businesses, modest start-ups, and publicly traded domestic corporations.
Business ventures should start out with well-planned entity formation and organization. The entity that you choose to form can have substantial consequences for tax liability and efficiency.
