McCarthy Wilson LLP is recognized as a leading litigation firm in the area of insurance defense and insurance coverage, and the firm excels in all aspects of insurance law and insurance litigation. We are regularly retained by insurance groups to defend their clients and their companies when claims are asserted or litigation arises.

The firm’s Insurance Defense Group includes a staff of experienced insurance attorneys, as well as paralegals and law clerks, who aggressively work to resolve claims and coverage concerns in such areas as: Bad Faith Claims; Excess and Surplus Lines; General Negligence; Property and Casualty Insurance; Reinsurance Matters; and, SIR Disputes.

Our attorneys also handle proceedings before administrative agencies, including matters before state and federal insurance commissions, OSHA, licensing boards, and worker’s compensation commissions. A substantial portion of the firm’s practice involves the defense of professionals including physicians, dentists, nurses, and other health care providers. These services include contract drafting, negotiation, and risk management and analysis. Our attorneys have a strong history of reducing claims exposure by identifying and addressing areas of potential conflict before they become problems or before they result in litigation.

Our attorneys actively share their knowledge of insurance law and coverage with clients through ongoing seminars and workshops and by offering assistance with the drafting of specialized policy language, claims-handling materials and company guidelines. We are proud of our reputation in the area of insurance law. While we take pride in our ability to avoid the expense of unnecessary litigation through the successful use of arbitration, our attorneys stand ready to vigorously defend our clients against all claims using the experience, staff and resources available to us.

The firm’s attorneys have successfully represented many of the nation’s major manufacturers in a wide variety of lawsuits.
