With our roots in Chicago and decades of combined experience, our insurance coverage and re-insurance team at Novak Law understands the risks, costs and challenges in making the right decisions for complicated insurance coverage and reinsurance questions. We understand how to engage in cost-effective coverage litigation or re-insurance arbitration for general liability, property, disability and other areas. We represent clients from London to Los Angeles and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
We help our clients with:
- Analyzing complicated insurance questions from trigger of coverage to the applicability of various exclusions
- Negotiate and arbitrate excess of loss and proportional treaty reinsurance contracts, and facultative certificates, and long term liability problems involving asbestos, environmental hazards and toxic torts
One of the biggest challenges today in asbestos re-insurance is the determination of whether a claim involves multiple occurrences or a single occurrence. Our lawyers are skilled in evaluating the facts that lead to the correct answer for your problem. We have confirmed and challenged awards under the Federal Arbitration Act and the Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards.
