Insurance Coverage

The attorneys of Grotefeld Hoffmann have extensive experience with complex, high-exposure insurance coverage issues and effectively handle all aspects of insurance coverage disputes. We provide full-service representation to our clients, not only defending our clients in the courtroom, but also offering guidance on potential exposures before litigation begins. Our lawyers work closely with clients to quickly identify the most effective legal strategy available, whether it is litigation or alternative dispute resolution.

Our attorneys specialize in risk management, review of insurance claims, insurance claim litigation, mediation, arbitration, appraisals, appeals, and insurance policy and coverage reviews. We thoroughly investigate and analyze the facts and law behind all claims, and vigorously defend against all improper claims. This includes claims involving first- and third-party bad faith, excess liability exposures, negligent inspection, damage measurement and arson and fraud. Our firm’s attorneys have expertise in coverage issues related to property and casualty, general liability, builders risk, commercial liability and errors and omissions policies.

At Grotefeld Hoffmann, we understand that excellent service does not simply mean addressing and defending a single claim; true client representation means understanding the needs, culture and long-term goals of our clients. Our attorneys’ experience with and understanding of the industry’s unique demands enables us to deliver efficient and effective litigation strategies.

Advice and Counsel
