Insurance Policy Coverage Opinions and Disputes
A cornerstone of Wilkins Patterson is the representation we have provided to insurance carriers as both coverage counsel as well as litigation counsel. For more than 30 years, our firm has been guiding insurers through the myriad of coverage disputes that arise, including personal, commercial, business, professional, health, disability as well as excess and umbrella policies.
Our top priority is to produce timely opinion letters that thoroughly analyze questions of coverage and present informed recommendations to our clients. We carefully evaluate coverage positions to create cost-effective strategies for successful resolution including the preparation of coverage opinions, reservation of rights letters, non-waiver agreements and denial letters. This enables our clients to make reasoned and fair decisions concerning their policyholders. When litigation becomes necessary, our attorneys are prepared to vigorously defend our clients’ interests and have extensive experience in filing and defending declaratory judgments.
