Bad Faith/Extra Contractual Liability
Gfeller Laurie LLP serves as regional (Northeast) counsel to leading domestic insurance companies in litigation involving statutory and common law first-party and third-party extracontractual and bad faith claims. We have defended clients in extracontractual disputes and bad faith claims relating to property policies, general liability policies, D&O policies, professional liability policies, excess and umbrella policies, life, health and disability policies, contractor liability policies and uninsured or under-insured motorist coverage.
We firmly believe the best approach in defending bad faith cases is to be consistently aggressive. At the outset, we provide each client with a detailed evaluation of the litigation and our proposed strategy. From then on, we work as a team to obtain dismissal of the bad faith claims, avoid discovery exploitation and, ultimately, win the case.
In addition, we routinely provide our clients with value-added services, such as claims-handling and bad-faith avoidance seminars, state surveys on bad faith and punitive damages statutes and case law, as well as articles and reviews covering recent trends in case law.
