Representing clients in insurance matters and coverage litigation has been a cornerstone of German, Gallagher & Murtagh's practice since its inception. Our experience in all phases and areas of insurance law includes coverage litigation, bad faith litigation, as well as providing advice and opinions on a variety of coverage matters. We have provided advice and represented insurers in a wide variety of matters involving errors and omissions policies, primary and excess commercial general liability policies, school leaders policies, claims made and occurrence policies, homeowners policies, automobile policies and life and death policies.
Our firm served as national coverage counsel for a carrier in complex environmental coverage litigation. We have pursued numerous declaratory judgment actions, both in the state and in the federal systems, in order to resolve coverage disputes. Issues and coverage terms that have been analyzed include advertising injury coverage and violations of antitrust laws and patent infringement, personal injury coverage and wrongful eviction and malicious prosecution, exclusions for employment-related claims, exclusions for sexual abuse, recoverability of punitive damages, violations of the Unfair Insurance Practices Act and bad faith, and trigger of coverage and allocation of damages and occupational health, accidental death and competing beneficiary claims.
