Insurance Defense

We have a large, sophisticated and industry-leading insurance defense practice for claims defense, claims avoidance and risk management.

Insurance law is one of the Firm’s largest and most active practice areas. THE CAVANAGH LAW FIRM has long been known as one of the preeminent firms in the region for the handling of insurance matters.

We represent the interests of insurers in all areas of defense and coverage matters and maintain an active relationship with insurers nationwide.

We have developed fraud detection programs that resulted in national standards for the identification, investigation and reporting of fraudulent insurance claims.

Our insurance attorneys are responsive, experienced, thorough, meticulous and tenacious. We maintain agreed-upon litigation budgets and keep insurers and their insureds informed of the progress of litigation.

We also defend insurance companies in employment claims by their employees.

Representative Matters

  • Our attorneys obtained dismissal of a whistleblowing claim by an insurance company in-house counsel who alleged that the company grossly under-reserved for claims he was handling during the company’s initial public offering.
  • One of our attorneys also successfully defended an insurer in a trial in another state in litigation alleging a national pattern-and-practice of terminating older, highly compensated insurance agents.
