Insurance and Reinsurance

The core mission of the insurance industry is to help its customers manage risk. When insurers face coverage and policy disputes, they need legal counsel who are equally committed to helping them address and resolve potential liabilities. With more than 40 attorneys representing insurance companies across the globe, Troutman Sanders offers clients one of the pre-eminent national insurance and reinsurance practices.

Our attorneys have been recognized by Chambers USA for their depth of experience in handling contentious insurance and reinsurance matters and we have decades of experience delivering high-value counsel to our clients. In doing so, we draw on our history representing the insurance industry in its most significant and complex matters and the real-world lessons and best practices that derive from our outstanding record of success. We have advised clients in coverage and reinsurance disputes in all 50 states and numerous foreign jurisdictions.

Among other areas, our attorneys handle insurance coverage disputes involving asbestos and environmental contamination spanning decades, during the course of which policyholders have claimed hundreds of millions of dollars. We are also involved in coverage issues arising out of the country’s biggest corporate scandals, and routinely serve as national coordinating counsel, handling matters arising out of mass torts including tobacco, lead paint, and Chinese drywall, among others. Our reinsurance attorneys have represented cedents, reinsurers, and intermediaries in significant litigation matters and arbitrations across a variety of areas.

We are well positioned to handle the largest insurance and reinsurance disputes, and we are equally willing to put our demonstrated experience to cost-effective use in connection with smaller policies and claims that are of significant importance to our clients. We handle high-exposure cases across a range of insurance issues and coverage lines, including the following:
