Distinctive Representation For Insurance Litigation Matters
The sophisticated nature of certain specialty insurance products and the representation of financial institutions and their directors and officers requires experienced counsel. Our attorneys defend professionals and agents in connection with these claims, and are intimately familiar with the nuances of myriad insurance policy regulations as well as insurance claims handling and insurance defense.
While a major portion of our cases are title insurance defense cases, Hein Schneider & Bond also provides seasoned counsel for insureds under policies of:
- Directors and officers’ liability — Directors and officers liability insurance has become a core component of corporate insurance as the actions of directors and officers of corporations and financial institutions have come under increasingly intense scrutiny due to market conditions. This area of the insurance industry has become highly specialized and new products are constantly emerging to meet the needs of specific markets. Our attorneys have the industry knowledge and background to represent directors and officers in cases filed in state and federal court in Missouri and Illinois.
- Errors and omissions liability — Professionals and insurance agents see their assets exposed to suits filed by plaintiffs who have asserted that a negligent act or omission makes them responsible for damages. Our attorneys are also regularly asked to provide policy and claims analysis for insurers, including coverage determinations and investigations, and the analysis of liability and availability of recoupment under errors and omissions policies.
- Surety and fiduciary liability — The obligations undertaken by sureties and fiduciaries are limited while the allegations asserting liability are broad and complex. Each claim is analyzed and evaluated by competent counsel experienced in handling claims mired in complex issues.
