Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig specializes in representing insurers in complex, high-exposure coverage matters. We have successfully represented insurers in state and federal courts across the country in multimillion dollar disputes involving all lines, including professional liability, errors and omissions, commercial general liability, directors and officers, excess and surplus and commercial property.
Our extensive experience includes analyzing claims, drafting opinions and providing insurers with sound pre-litigation coverage advice. We also draft reservation of rights and declination letters for our clients with an eye towards litigation, particularly since such letters are usually key exhibits in coverage litigation. Our attorneys aggressively prosecute declaratory judgment actions and vigorously defend clients against bad faith allegations and punitive damage claims.
We strive to represent our clients in the most cost-effective manner possible. As a boutique AV rated firm with lawyers from top twenty schools and pedigree resumes, who left behind mega-firms -- firms that have continually raised their hourly rates in recent years -- we provide our clients with a large firm expertise and service at economical rates.
