The core mission of the insurance industry is to help its customers and clients manage risk. When insurers face coverage and policy disputes, they need legal counsel that is equally committed to helping them address and resolve potential liabilities. With more than 35 attorneys representing insurance companies across the globe, Troutman Sanders offers clients one of the pre-eminent national insurance coverage practices.

We are ranked among the top firms nationally by Chambers USA, which notes that we have “a level of depth that is rarely matched when it comes to contentious insurance matters.” 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, our extensive government experience, and the real-world lessons and best practices that derive from our outstanding record of success. We have advised clients in coverage 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 tens 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. We are well positioned to handle the largest insurance coverage disputes, and we are equally willing to put our demonstrated experience to cost-effective use in connection with smaller policies that, despite less at risk, are of significant importance to our clients. We handle high-exposure cases across a range of insurance issues and coverage lines, including the following:
