About

Provided by Foley Hoag LLP

Foley Hoag’s Insurance Recovery Practice represents policyholders in property/casualty insurance recovery disputes. If an insurer wrongly refuses coverage, or mishandles a claim, our insurance recovery attorneys know the best strategies to make it fulfill its coverage promises.
Foley Hoag has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for our clients under commercial general liability, umbrella and excess liability, employment practices liability, professional liability, and directors’ and officers’ liability policies. We also have successfully represented policyholders in connection with “first party” losses under employee dishonesty policies, “all risk” property policies, ocean marine open cargo policies, and precious metals “stock floater” policies. Our lawyers have particularly extensive experience in asbestos and pollution insurance coverage.

The hallmarks of Insurance Recovery legal practice are:

  • In-depth analysis of policy terms;
  • Expertise in the historical forms of policies; and
  • Cost-effective litigation approaches.

In court, our insurance recovery lawyers are particularly adept at using summary judgment procedures either to win coverage outright or to eliminate insurer coverage defenses, thereby setting up a favorable settlement. We also favor the use of mediation or other alternative dispute resolution mechanisms, where appropriate. But if the case must be tried, Foley Hoag brings one of the legal profession’s top trial teams into court with you.
