Our firm’s representation of the insurance industry spans more than a century. Our experience, broad expertise, and steadfast commitment to client service are consistently recognized by prestigious legal publications and ranking organizations, such as Best Lawyers®, Florida Super Lawyers and Martindale-Hubbell.

Our lawyers frequently speak at industry gatherings such as meetings of the International Claims Association, the Defense Research Institute, and the Eastern Claims Association. We also regularly conduct in-house training and educational seminars for our insurer clients on preventing litigation and other matters.


We focus on advising clients on individual life, health, disability, and long-term care insurance policies, as well as matters stemming from ERISA-controlled group policies. Our attorneys provide transactional and complex litigation representation in property and casualty insurance matters and routinely defend insurers in first- and third-party bad faith cases. Our lawyers often serve as lead defense counsel in high-profile insurance class action matters.

More than a dozen of our experienced attorneys counsel insurers in state and federal trial and appellate courts throughout Florida and in significant litigation pending in other states. Although we’ll vigorously litigate a case if it is warranted – and we’re proud of our litigation record – we believe in working with our clients on alternative dispute resolution methods.

Our Commitment

We are dedicated to staying on top of the latest trends and issues in the insurance industry and keeping our clients informed on best practices in claims handling, deposition and trial preparation for employees, and the detection and prevention of fraudulent insurance claims. We believe that by partnering with our insurer clients we can provide effective and efficient legal services furthering their interests in this ever-changing field.
