Insurance Litigation

Individuals and businesses purchase various forms of insurance to secure the financial well-being of themselves and those they care about the most.  Although, when marketing their products, insurance companies frequently characterize themselves as “neighbors” or “friends” offering security and peace of mind, that collegial attitude often disappears once an insured files a claim.  All too often, insurance companies are reluctant to fulfill their obligations, and wrongly disclaim coverage or deny claims, thereby depriving insureds of the benefits to which they are lawfully entitled.

Our attorneys make every effort to resolve each dispute without resort to litigation, and are often able to achieve favorable results through negotiation or mediation.  In the event that litigation becomes necessary, however, Paneth & O'Mahony's insurance litigators use their vast experience and in-depth knowledge of the insurance industry to successfully represent policyholders, beneficiaries, and insurance agents and brokers in connection with all forms of insurance coverage disputes, including those involving:

  • Life Insurance, including Stranger Owned Life Insurance (“STOLI”) policies and lapsed life insurance policies
