The attorneys in our general liability, tort, and insurance defense department have significant experience representing clients in property damage cases stemming from fires, water damage, gas explosions, and other catastrophic events and conditions. Much of our practice in this area is devoted to the defense of large-exposure property damage cases, in which we work closely with trusted experts, insurance appraisers and our clients to expeditiously pursue favorable resolutions. We also routinely represent contractors, subcontractors, suppliers and other clients in property damage claims arising out of alleged construction defects and other construction-related claims.

Strategic Defense of Claims Involving Damage to Commercial and Residential Properties

Property damage claims can be extraordinarily complex, and insurance companies and other entities can face substantial exposure due to negligence and defect-based claims. As defense counsel, we seek to simplify these matters to the greatest extent possible, streamlining the litigation and leaving plaintiffs’ attorneys, judges and juries with little choice but to acknowledge the strength of our client’s defense. In all cases, we remain in close contact with our clients throughout the course of the litigation, relying on their insights and providing them with the information they need to make sound decisions with their immediate and long-term best interests in mind.

Our practice includes representing commercial and residential property insurers and other clients in defense of property damage claims involving allegations of:

  • Explosions
  • Fires
  • Negligence
  • Product defects
  • Storm damage
  • Water intrusion
  • Other casualty events
