Overview

The Tucker Ellis Insurance Group assists our clients – including many of the world’s largest and most respected insurers – in meeting their business program, claim, and litigation needs.

We draft coverage programs and endorsements that ensure compliance with all regulatory obligations. Our specially prepared broker/agent agreements strengthen and support business operations under clear standards to avoid unnecessary disputes that can detract from successful and profitable relationships. And when disputes arise with business partners, the Insurance Group has the experience to represent our clients in enforcing and defending their rights in both judicial and arbitration settings.

We provide claim assistance, including the development of complete and thoughtful coverage opinions, the ongoing monitoring of claims and defense counsel (and the analysis of legal defense fees), and active participation in strategic and settlement discussions. Our approach supports our clients’ business relationship needs, while protecting their financial interests on an individual claim and programmatic basis.

When necessary, we file and defend declaratory relief and bad faith litigation in jurisdictions throughout the United States, often partnering with our Appellate & Legal Issues Group to boil down complex or challenging issues into persuasive factual and legal arguments.
