Insurance Law Services | DeWitt LLP Law Firm
Navigating the intricacies of insurance coverage is a pivotal aspect of risk management routinely faced by our clients—both businesses and individuals—across various policy types. Recognizing the complexity and potential intimidation associated with insurance coverage issues, clients seek attorneys who possess a profound understanding of this unique area of the law to achieve favorable outcomes.
Our insurance coverage attorneys bring extensive experience to the table, advising and assisting clients as they grapple with intricate insurance recovery challenges. Our overarching goal is to resolve coverage disputes amicably and efficiently for clients. However, should an amicable resolution prove unattainable, our attorneys stand ready to litigate and arbitrate insurance coverage issues on behalf of policyholders, consistently delivering proven results.
Illustrating our ability in insurance coverage matters, here are a few outcomes achieved by DeWitt’s Insurance Coverage attorneys:
- Successfully established insurance coverage for a Wisconsin paper company facing alleged environmental liabilities exceeding $100 million after a five-week jury trial, defending the verdict on appeal and securing affirmation by the Wisconsin Court of Appeals
- Secured millions of dollars in coverage for a Wisconsin city after insurers denied coverage for the costs of remediating former city landfills
- Obtained a summary judgment ruling, finding insurance coverage under both a homeowner’s insurance policy and an umbrella policy for an individual client after a tragic accident on the homeowner's property
- Successfully defended two companies facing multi-million-dollar claims for remediating a leaking landfill, securing dismissals and settlements in state and federal court
- Obtained policy limits under a commercial crime coverage form for a family-owned business following the discovery of an executive stealing from the company
- Successfully established that a homeowner’s insurer breached its duty to defend and indemnify its policyholder in a case brought before the Wisconsin Supreme Court
- Assisted a policyholder in navigating insurance coverage issues after a data breach resulted in significant losses
Our comprehensive experience in litigating insurance coverage matters, combined with our adeptness in helping clients proactively resolve disputes, equips us to approach each insurance coverage matter with a keen awareness of potential obstacles.
In the realm of insurance coverage, litigation is not the sole service our coverage attorneys provide. We extend our support to clients in pre-litigation and transactional matters involving insurance coverage, addressing non-litigation issues such as understanding insurance policies, drafting insurance language in business contracts, and reviewing policies to identify gaps and coverage portfolio issues. Clients seek our guidance not only for dispute resolution but also for advice that anticipates and addresses challenges across the spectrum of insurance coverage.
