The Farella Braun + Martel Insurance Recovery Group is devoted to recovering insurance money for our clients in coverage disputes and litigation. We also provide advice on insurance programs, policy drafting and risk management. As presented in our approach to this blog, we are a collaborative group; with any one of us, you retain the combined knowledge and skill of the entire group.

Based on the breadth and depth of our work in policy interpretation and advocacy, as well as in the insurance industry and the claims resolution process, we find coverage where others cannot. Our widely recognized Group’s knowledge of the insurance industry, combined with well-honed advocacy skills, make us a formidable force where we regularly educate the client and defense counsel on how to best position a lawsuit to maximize liability coverage. We work with mediators, arbitrators and judges to make sure they understand the coverage issues and how these issues apply to the dynamics of the case at hand.

We have assisted clients in asserting claims for a wide variety of exposures, including securities fraud and other corporate directors’ and officers’ liabilities, technology and professional errors and omissions claims, data privacy breaches and other cyber liability risks, products liability, aviation losses, intellectual property disputes, environmental liabilities, employment litigation, construction delay and defects claims, and disasters like earthquakes, fires and floods. The Group also advises private businesses and public entities regarding risk management programs, such as the evaluation of current or proposed insurance programs, captive insurance programs, owner-controlled insurance programs, environmental remediation protection and other risk management and risk transfer devices.
