Several of our veteran trial lawyers have been selected by their peers for inclusion in Illinois Leading Lawyers for insurance coverage law.

Our Insurance Defense Lawyers Can Help

Our Chicago law firm handles insurance coverage matters across the United States, serving as both coordinating and trial counsel.  We have prosecuted and defended declaratory judgment actions and provided coverage opinions for claims arising from professional liability, general liability, commercial auto, personal auto and homeowner policies.  We have defended insurance companies against numerous claims of bad faith, consumer fraud and breach of contract.

Our deep involvement in insurance coverage litigation over the past two decades extends to the representation of clients in disputes involving non-traditional issues, such as coverage for gun violence, environmental cleanup, advertising injury and a host of other specialty coverages. As a result of our wealth of experience, clients also seek our advice on insurance policy drafting and regulatory issues, as well as counseling regarding the handling of claims.

We Have the Experience to Serve You

We currently serve as national class action counsel for a subsidiary of Zurich, defending that subsidiary in national and state-wide class actions. Our attorneys also represent Kemper Insurance Companies, advising on, litigating and resolving high-stakes cases nationwide. In addition, we represent Progressive Insurance Company, Allianz Insurance Company, Capitol Insurance Company and Liberty Mutual Insurance.
