Insurance & Reinsurance
The Insurance and Reinsurance Group at Robinson & Cole represents more than 100 insurance companies and reinsurers in a wide spectrum of matters and includes experienced insurance lawyers who are leaders in their respective fields. Insurance and Reinsurance Group attorneys have broad experience in a wide range of complex coverage and claims litigation involving property, liability, life, health, disability, directors and officers, professional liability, marine, inland marine, excess, reinsurance, title policies, and uninsured/underinsured motorist, as well as subrogation, class action, and extracontractual claims litigation. In addition, Insurance and Reinsurance Group lawyers represent insurers in administrative matters involving state insurance and tax departments, investment and real estate transactions, agency relationships, compliance, and employment matters. The Insurance and Reinsurance Group is also able to capitalize on the broad substantive abilities of our firm in defending environmental liability, products liability, title and real estate defects, professional liability, and construction defect claims made against policyholders by third parties.
As our practice has expanded from our base in the Northeast to cover matters across the United States, many of our lawyers have taken leadership roles in national and international professional organizations related to insurance law, including the Property Insurance Law Committee and the Professionals’, Officers’ and Directors’ Liability Committee of the Tort and Insurance Practice Section (TIPS) of the ABA, the Property Insurance Committee of Federation of Insurance and Corporate Counsel (FICC), the Property Insurance Committee of the International Association of Defense Counsel (IADC), and the Loss Executives Association (LEA). Members of the Insurance Group are also regular panelists at meetings of the Property Loss Research Bureau (PLRB), the Defense Research Institute (DRI), and other educational programs in the field. Two of our members developed and teach a course in property insurance law offered as part of the LLM program at the University of Connecticut School of Law's Insurance Law Center.
