Surety Companies & Agents


Providing surety coverage to businesses and making a profit is sometimes not a simple task for either carriers or agencies. With additional regulation and ever increasing claims, cost management has become difficult and complex.

 

Even while putting their best foot forward, carriers and agents often find themselves on the defensive in unjustified claims brought by claimants and plaintiff's attorneys. In taking up their defense, carriers and agents have found themselves defended by attorneys whose abilities are limited to "holding back" maneuvers rather than the aggressive, but skillful approach needed by carriers, underwriters and agents to bring about the best result.

 

Our firm offers legal representation from attorneys who are known for their accomplishments and who are experienced at providing a forceful and professional defense.  We are aware of the fact that the purpose of our representation is to assist the company or agent in cost management of a claim and therefore we do not allow clients to pay for educating our staff on new matters.

 

Our usual services to surety companies and agents includerepresentation in law suits and claims involving such issues as:


            1.  Defense against unjustified or excessive claims for commercial property losses, professional malpractice
                 and all other business related claims;

2.  Defense against "bad faith claims"; and

3.  Contract enforcement and defense under non­insurance agreements such as leases on real estate owned
                 by the insurance company or carrier.
