Insurance Coverage

Woolls Peer Dollinger & Scher provides thorough, efficient and timely analysis of coverage issues. We regularly advise clients on issues relating to first party property, general liability, directors and officers, employer’s liability, professional liability, marine and fidelity policies, and reinsurance contracts. Our attorneys have decades of experience addressing such complex matters as environmental, toxic tort, wrongful discharge, advertising injury and special investigation - property claims. A substantial part of our practice is devoted to analyzing first and third party coverage for construction defect claims. We represent major commercial insurers of developers, general contractors and subcontractors in a variety of trades and on both commercial and residential projects. Our breadth of experience in this and other areas allows us to accurately assess exposure and likelihood of insurance recovery at the outset of a claim.

Our attorneys have successfully undertaken major litigation challenges in state and federal courts, at trial and appellate levels, and before administrative and ADR tribunals. As litigators, we have experience with all available procedures, including obtaining and resisting provisional remedies, coordinating with large defense groups, conducting bench and jury trials, enforcing judgments and briefing and arguing appeals. We pride ourselves on our ability to achieve successful results at minimum expense to our clients through an early comprehensive analysis and formation of detailed strategic plans.

Our claim handling assistance includes the preparation of opinion letters, the conduct of examinations-under- oath, the retention of private investigators and scientific consultants, the negotiation of cost-sharing agreements, and the development of strategies for the proper and efficient disposition of claims and the pursuit of subrogation opportunities. From time-to-time, we also provide advice and assistance in drafting policy forms and specialized endorsements.
