Insurance Defense and Coverage
Bangerter Sheppard has earned a reputation as a preeminent representative of insurance companies and their insureds by emphasizing its major goals of cost-effective case handling without compromising the quality of work product or the defense of the insured. Our attorneys maintain close relationships with insurance companies which foster a seamless and effective handling of general tort liability claims. This is made possible through our commitment to delivering excellent results in the courtroom and in alternative dispute resolution with accountability, trustworthiness and integrity.
Our representation of those insured by these companies includes a wide variety of cases, including commercial general liability, professional liability, errors and omissions, premises liability, commercial trucking and vehicle liability, products liability, directors and officers liability and elder abuse cases. We strive to be a leader in the industry in our representation of target defendants in complex litigation, and of insurers in bad faith litigation. Our attorneys also handle cases involving the defense of companies who are alleged to have participated in unfair competition/unfair business practices under section 17200 of the California Business and Professions Code.
In matters involving insurance coverage, our goal is to provide sound, reasoned coverage counsel, which is not only consistent with the policy terms, but yields practical solutions and results for the specific claim. We provide expertise in both third party and first party contexts. Our ability to effectively represent our clients in both non-litigated and litigated coverage disputes sets us apart from many other firms in the field of insurance coverage.
Bangerter Sheppard’s attorneys provide advice on claims handling, including whether to pay, deny or pursue declaratory relief in matters involving complex claims. Our attorneys have the benefit of years of experience working with insurance professionals, and are recognized by A.M. Best Company’s Directory of Recommended Attorneys for their “reputation, character and experience” in the area of insurance law.
