With more than 30 attorneys firm wide, Sheppard Mullin boasts one of the largest insurance teams in California. We represent many of the nation’s largest insurers, including Liberty Mutual, Allstate, Travelers, Allianz, Safeco, Unum/Provident, Fireman’s Fund and Lloyd's.
We have an unparalleled track record of achieving outstanding results for our clients in their most challenging matters – from class actions to high exposure bad faith cases to complex coverage matters.
Over the past 30 years, we have obtained judgments on the merits in well over 1,000 bad faith lawsuits. We have extensive jury trial experience, having tried numerous cases to verdict in both state and federal court, including several cases recognized by the Daily Journal as top defense verdicts in California.
In addition, we have defended more than 100 class actions, winning over 85 percent of these cases by motion, at the class certification stage and – in one of the largest certified insurance class actions in California – at trial.
We also serve as national counsel for major insurers on institutional issues and other matters involving significant financial risk. We have defended our clients in class actions and other institutionally-important matters in 24 states.
Our attorneys also are appellate specialists, who have contributed to the development of the law in the insurance area. We have obtained favorable results for our clients in dozens of published and unpublished appellate decisions.
