We Know Our Clients

Our clients rely on us in critical times of loss. We help businesses and individuals facing costly litigation or recovering from a catastrophic event to get the financial protection they deserve from their insurance carriers. While the goal to maximize recovery remains the same, each client’s path is different. We pursue insurance claims with a customized approach tailored to your specific needs.

We are trusted business advisors helping clients maximize insurance benefits.

From the billion-dollar property loss to individual liability insurance claims, each client’s needs are significant. We have experience providing creative, efficient, right-size solutions to accommodate both your legal and financial objectives.

We Are a Team

Collaboration is a daily part of our practice. Our clients’ insurance claims often involve multiple and diverse legal issues from intellectual property law to bankruptcy, oil and gas law and securities regulation. When such matters arise, our insurance coverage group can draw upon the wealth of knowledge and experience provided by hundreds of firm lawyers in literally dozens of legal disciplines. The breadth and depth of firm experience allows us to provide unparalleled efficiency, responsiveness and client service in maximizing your insurance claim.

Our Community Matters

In 1998, the chair of our practice group pioneered the formation of the Insurance Law Section of the State Bar of Texas - a statewide organization of insurance coverage attorneys and industry representatives – helping them stay on the cutting edge of insurance law and industry trends for the benefit of our clients. Today, members of our insurance recovery group hold leadership positions in local, state and national bar organizations. Beyond the legal community, our coverage lawyers also give countless hours of service each year to pro bono clients as well as charitable, educational and religious organizations.
