Insurance Defense

We have extensive experience defending insurance companies and their insureds, as well as large self-insurers, in a wide variety of cases involving claims related to personal or bodily injuries, property damage, premises liability, and liquor liability and dram shop issues. We defend carriers sued for breach of contract, statutory delay or denial (under C.R.S. § 10-3-1115 and -1116, sometimes unartfully called “statutory bad faith”), and common law bad faith. Our attorneys are experienced in defending such suits whether they arise out of the handling of property claims or personal or bodily injury claims.

Through early assessment and negotiations, our attorneys work to find cost-effective solutions from initial coverage questions through trial and appeal. We have resolved first- and third-party disputes on behalf of insurers and policyholders, from multi-million-dollar claims to simple demands for coverage. We have experience representing insurance companies involving directors’ and officers’ liability policies, commercial general liability policies, professional liability insurance policies, life insurance policies, homeowner’s insurance policies and automobile liability insurance policies, among others.

We are listed as panel counsel for insurance providers in the areas of employment, auto liability, medical malpractice and professional liability. Our extensive knowledge and experience in insurance law enables us to provide our clients with the highest level of cost-effective service handling, not only routine coverage matters but also their most complex and high-profile lawsuits.
