Our experience in this regard makes us highly attuned to how particular D&O insurance policy language can impact the resolution

7 They achieved an excellent result by focusing on the ultimate desired resolution to a - U.S. News Best Lawyers Best Law Firms complicated set of problems. of securities fraud litigation. We never lose sight of why these policies were purchased and what they are intended to accomplish. Our attorneys have years of experience in litigating insurance coverage disputes, including numerous disputes under D&O and fiduciary insurance policies. We take policy language seriously because we understand how important policy language can be in successfully resolving insurance litigation and how a few words can make millions of dollars worth of difference. Insurance Program Audits Neal Gerber Eisenberg s Insurance Policyholder practice group assists various public and private entities as well as directors, professionals and non-profit associations review, negotiate, build and maintain comprehensive insurance coverage programs that protect the entities balance sheets as well individuals personal assets from allegations of wrongdoing arising out of their business operations. Ensuring adequate protection is critical in today s unstable economy as companies see increased claims and litigation, regardless of whether the allegations have merit. We regularly audit the insurance programs of entities both large and small. Moreover, the programs we audit may be as simple as a single line of insurance, or as complex as many integrated lines and layers of coverage. Regardless of the size of the client or the complexity of the insurance program, the goal remains the same to ensure that the client s insurance program meets the client s needs in light of the potential sources of liability the client may encounter. As a result of our policy audits, we often are able to assist our clients in negotiating significant, important policy enhancements. In addition, because we know what to look for in a policy and what is available in the insurance market, many of the policy enhancements and protections we recommend are available at no additional premium charge. Our legal services are different from and are a complement to the services that insurance brokers provide. We focus on insurance procurement and negotiation and claim disputes. We regularly represent our clients on the claims side, so we are very familiar with the loopholes that insurance companies use to try and avoid their coverage obligations and are able to put this knowledge to good use in correcting potentially ambiguous policy language. Having legal counsel who focus on these matters with the ability to conduct an insurance program audit offers several benefits. First, and perhaps most importantly, clients can have a candid discussion with their counsel about the scope of coverage, risk management concerns, potential claims or broker liability under the protection of the attorney-client privilege. Communications with insurance brokers are generally not privileged. Second, as insurance coverage counsel, we keep abreast of the latest developments in insurance coverage law. Our insurance policyholder attorneys know what type of policy language is likely to cause coverage disputes between carriers and insureds and can suggest favorable policy language to help avoid such disputes. Members of our practice group are nationally recognized in insurance coverage disputes and routinely speak on issues at the cutting edge of developments in the insurance market and in insurance coverage law.
