About Us

Malapero Prisco & Klauber LLP specializes in providing litigation and related services to the insurance industry. Our partners each have over twenty-five years of litigation experience. As a foundation to building a successful relationship with its insurance carriers, third party administrators and clients, we are dedicated to the early formulation of a defense strategy in concert with the client and in maintaining close communication with the claims professional. This allows the client to quickly and reliably identify those cases which would benefit from an early resolution and to control litigation costs.

Malapero Prisco & Klauber LLP have trial experience in the five counties of New York, as well as Nassau County, Suffolk County, Westchester County, Rockland County, Putnam County, Dutchess County and Orange County, the Federal Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, and the State and Federal Courts of New Jersey.

Malapero Prisco & Klauber LLP realizes litigation costs are a prime concern to clients. We offer a range of tested, cost-effective strategies, which are tailored to each client’s needs. We attempt to resolve disputes in a manner which is practical and efficient from a business as well as a legal perspective. We aggressively pursue early evaluation and settlement where appropriate on a cost-of-defense basis. If litigation is required, we will work with the client to determine the process best suited to their needs, be it motion practice, negotiation, mediation, or taking a case to trial.

Our practice is conducted in accordance with the Recommended Case Handling Guidelines for Insurers, as promulgated by The Defense Research Institute. We have the flexibility to coordinate billing with all electronic billing formats. Our billing conforms to the Uniform Task Based Management System as required. Billing cycles are tailored to meet the individual needs of our clients.
