Serving Our Clients' Unique Insurance Recovery Needs

Nossaman attorneys understand that our clients face unique challenges and have specialized coverage needs.  We provide a full spectrum of counseling, advisory and litigation services to address our clients' business objectives and widespread needs, including:

  • Evaluating Coverage: Are your current insurance policies really covering you? 

Insurance policies are technical documents.  Nossaman attorneys will analyze your current insurance coverage to ensure your expectations are being met.

  • Identifying Risk: Does your company have the appropriate coverage to meet its business needs?

Every company has unique insurance needs.  Nossaman attorneys will recommend coverage so that your company will be protected from potential exposures. Nossaman attorneys can also assist in negotiating custom insurance terms ("manuscripting") as appropriate.

  • Advising on Your Options:  Do you need to understand your legal choices when your carrier is failing to live up to its end of the bargain?

Insurance companies are renowned for denying coverage to their policyholders and for underpaying claims when they do pay.  Nossaman attorneys will provide guidance to your company when your insurance company fails to honor its obligation.  

  • Pursuing Your Claims: Do you need to fight for the claims you know you are entitled to?   

Nossaman has experienced litigators who have recovered billions of dollars for their clients through litigation, arbitration and mediation. 

  • Cyber Insurance: Are you protected?

Nossaman attorneys are experts in the new line of cyber insurance products, providing advice to clients on their existing insurance portfolios and recovery options to minimize losses in the event of a data breach or other cyber attack.  Nossaman’s insurance recovery attorneys frequently present and author articles regarding the security challenges faced by companies today, and the evolving cyber insurance landscape.

Our Experience and Success

Our insurance recovery attorneys have achieved tremendous success representing clients in litigation based on innovative strategies and unique theories.  Some of our greatest achievements include:

  • Represented an international aerospace manufacturer that had been sued for groundwater contamination and obtained a full defense after summary judgment and thereafter had the coverage case stayed pending the successful defense of the underlying lawsuit.
  • Represented governmental entities that had been sued in groundwater pollution cases, recovering hundreds of millions in investigative and clean-up costs from scores of insurers and establishing the right of policyholders to stack limits of multiple policies in continuous loss cases under "all sums" insurance policies.
  • Represented a building materials manufacturer that had used materials containing asbestos in its products for decades before the dangers of asbestos use had become known, in coverage litigation spanning several decades of coverage.  Tried Phase 1 to the court for an entire year; settled most of the remaining issues, recovering coverage of about $1 billion.
  • Filed lawsuit against D&O and EPL insurers and successfully recovered defense expenses for a tech client. Previously, this client had obtained a jury verdict in a lawsuit brought by a former officer related to securities and misrepresentation claims.
  • Recovered settlement and defense expenses for a client from insurers who provided coverage dating back over 40 years—all without filing litigation.
  • Obtained insurance reimbursement for litigation expenses, without filing lawsuit, in high-stakes patent infringement litigation for a software manufacturer.
  • Obtained coverage from legacy insurers for settlement and defense expense for dozens of asbestos cases filed against manufacturer over the course of 20 years.
