Insurance Coverage

In addition to handling litigation matters, P.K. Schrieffer LLP represents a wide variety of insurers, including domestic carriers and those from the London insurance market.

We have extensive experience in insurance coverage regarding errors and omissions, claims made and reported policies, comprehensive general liability policies, directors and officers policies, disability policies, and company reimbursement policies, in addition to employment practices liability policies, to name a few.

Because we do both defense and insurance coverage work, it has a greater appreciation and understanding of the issues presented when dealing with insurance coverage. Our approach to insurance coverage is creative and outcome oriented. In the event that rights can be reserved, the firm frequently gives the client a wide variety of options given the economic situation facing an insurer and costs attendant to Cumis counsel under Civil Code § 2860.

Likewise, in the event further litigation is required under a given set of circumstances, the firm is experienced in handling affirmative claims against policyholders for declaratory relief, rescission, cancellation, and subrogation in State and Federal Courts. P.K. Schrieffer LLP maintains a detailed data bank of prior coverage reports and opinions, in addition to research and pleadings, thereby saving existing and future clients expensive research time that otherwise would be incurred by a less experienced firm.

Our secured Internet capabilities makes client communication easy, especially when clients are in a time zone other than Pacific Standard Time. In addition to communicating via email, the firm traditionally uses the Internet to transmit reports, summaries and updates to clients worldwide.
