The Insurance Group at Anderson & Kreiger is one of the leading insurance coverage practices in New England. We regularly work with both corporate insureds and insurance companies to navigate cutting edge insurance issues. Our practice is both sophisticated and national in scope and we have represented companies on both sides of the table in major coverage disputes. We have argued some of the most important insurance cases in Massachusetts including the leading “duty to defend” case in the Bay State.
The attorneys in our group have successfully litigated a wide array of coverage matters ranging from some of the earliest cases in Massachusetts involving multiyear, multilayer coverage for asbestos and environmental claims, to coverage suits arising from "sick building," toxic tort, construction and sexual abuse claims, to novel coverage issues under directors and officers liability policies.
We specialize in complex coverage and claims handling issues, including bad faith insurance practices, arising under directors & officers, professional liability, general liability, errors and omissions, environmental, and municipal liability policies. We also advise clients on cases involving property and fiduciary policies and life, health and disability insurance claims. In addition, our group maintains an active insurance regulatory practice and advises insurers on regulatory compliance issues.
Between the Lines
As a service to our friends and clients, we publish a blog on insurance coverage and bad faith issues called Between the Lines. Between the Lines provides a running commentary on caselaw and statutory developments affecting commercial lines of insurance coverage.
Tenacious Advocates and Experienced in Helping Clients Review Coverage
While we are tenacious advocates for our clients, we also help our clients avoid insurance disputes by negotiating and drafting a wide range of policies and endorsements and assisting clients in their review and purchase of coverage, including directors & officers, professional, environmental, employment practices and owner-controlled programs.
Although we are based in Massachusetts and often handle insurance cases in state and federal court here, including notable appeals in the First Circuit and Massachusetts appellate courts, the group has successfully litigated a significant number of high profile cases in jurisdictions outside of Massachusetts, including the federal district courts in Rhode Island, Vermont, Connecticut, Texas and Kansas, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
The group also regularly defends insureds in areas such as healthcare, professional and products liability.
