FAWLAW represents policyholders in insurance coverage claims and disputes, and assists clients with insurance placement and renewal. Our attorneys have recovered defense and indemnity proceeds on behalf of clients under a variety of policies, including commercial general liability, technology liability, business interruption, D&O, and E&O. Our work includes prosecution of claims for insurance bad faith and disputes involving the application of California Civil Code section 2860 and the California Supreme Court’s Buss v. Superior Court decision in court and in arbitration.
Our effectiveness as advocates for policyholders is enhanced by the prior experience of one of our partners as National Coordinating Counsel for a major environmental insurer.
FAWLAW has particular expertise representing clients in coverage disputes related to intellectual property cases, including the case that led to the Federal Circuit’s landmark In re Seagate Technology decision. Our substantive patent, trade secret, and antitrust knowledge provides us with an advantage over the firms that typically defend insurers in coverage disputes, and our competitors who lack our subject matter expertise.
