Helping you navigate the insurance industry.

 

We deal with the business of insurance. We handle claims. In fact, we do a lot of both.

We advise and represent insurers, brokers, businesses, professionals and regulatory bodies. Our lawyers are well versed in all manner of claims, including professional negligence, construction, environmental, and directors' and officers' liability matters. We have successfully defended and settled complex insurance defence claims. Whether resolution is through negotiation, mediation, arbitration or litigation, we recognize that our clients want cost-effective and timely results.

Appropriate insurance coverage can be a vital part of risk management. We help clients develop plans to avoid liability claims.

Planning for succession, sale or expansion? We represent Buyers and Sellers of brokerages, large and small, the banks and credit unions who finance those deals and the insurance companies whose products you sell. Our knowledge of regulations, valuation techniques and the range of possible deal structures and terms, financing alternatives and sources, allow us to conclude the best-possible deal, with no surprises.

Our tax knowledge ensures the right planning to preserve wealth, whether in inter-generational succession, mergers, acquisitions, retirements or simply cashing-out.

Understanding the insurance business allows us to be more than mere legal mechanics, but to act as trusted advisors for our clients.
