Counsel on claims, litigation, transactions, opinions and compliance

The legal landscape affecting the insurance industry is constantly changing.  Whether the result of technological advances and corresponding risk exposures, ever-evolving case law affecting coverage and bad faith standards, or ongoing changes to insurance regulations and their interpretation by state, federal and international courts and regulatory agencies, insurance companies must be prepared for it all.

The Insurance Practice Group at Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr assists our clients in meeting those challenges.  We represent insurers, reinsurers, MGAs and MGUs, insurance producers and other insurance industry intermediaries and participants, businesses with risk-assumption and risk-transfer undertakings, and InsurTech startups and insurers involved in developing and adopting new business strategies.

The firm’s insurance attorneys regularly share their insights and help our clients prepare for and manage change.  We have decades of experience advising companies on developing insurance programs, drafting and defending insurance products, and representing companies in the insurance and reinsurance industry before courts, regulatory agencies, mediators, and arbitration panels  nationwide.  In addition, the firm’s highly experienced insurance coverage attorneys provide valuable insights and advice in representing companies facing complex questions  regarding the wide range of coverage issues involving policies available in the current market, including commercial general liability, professional liability, directors and officers,  cyber, crime and fidelity and other specialty lines.

Our attorneys’ experience litigating and resolving complex policy issues enable us to offer forward thinking recommendations to partner with our client’s business goals.

We represent insurers in high-stakes insurance and reinsurance litigation in both federal and state courts and at the trial and appellate levels, including class action and bad faith claims, and in arbitration and mediation.  We also represent companies in the industry on cutting-edge regulatory matters, market conduct examinations, policy drafting and approval, mergers and acquisitions, reinsurance, coverage, cyber and InsurTech transactional matters.

When insurers want to change their organizational structure, introduce new products or address issues arising under existing ones, or expand into new markets, Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr attorneys have the knowledge and experience to support and guide them on the related legal issues.
