Extra-Contractual Liability Litigation



Whether defending allegations of improper claims processing, payment delays, failure to investigate or breach of contract, Wilson Elser’s Coverage attorneys help clients curtail bad faith liability via quick, intelligent and aggressive representation. We counsel both primary and excess insurers in complex, high-exposure and often high-profile extra-contractual matters.

The ligation of coverage issues is complex, with unfamiliar terms, shifting burdens of proof and archaic rules of construction not easily understood by those outside the industry. Our experienced attorneys can guide you through these challenges.

At all stages of an engagement, we rely on proven strategies to defend coverage claims and reduce our clients’ extra-contractual liability. To avoid unnecessary risk exposure and the possibility of litigation, we also collaborate with claims professionals and in-house counsel on ways to ensure compliance with good-faith investigation and approved settlement practices.
