For more than 30 years, the lawyers of K&L Gates have been developing and implementing innovative legal strategies to assist businesses and individuals in obtaining insurance coverage for an ever-increasing range of liabilities and losses. Nearly 100 of the firm’s lawyers, located in offices on several continents, are concentrated in what has become one of the largest policyholder-side insurance coverage practices according to Business Insurance. Our Insurance Coverage practice has also been recognized by the U.S. News & World Report “Best Law Firm” rankings, by Law360 as a “Practice Group of the Year,” and by Chambers USA, Chambers UK, and Legal 500.

K&L Gates has represented not only large corporate policyholders but also numerous midsize and smaller companies, and their officers and directors, as well as governmental entities and other organizations, in connection with insurance issues and claims. Policyholders in all industry groups have turned to K&L Gates to help evaluate the role of their insurance policies in their overall risk management program, to analyze policy wordings, to address large and small loss or liability issues, and to provide advice on insurance-related strategic concerns.

Our insurance coverage lawyers have advised clients regarding a host of different types of insurance issues, including those relating to directors and officers liability, products liability, property damage and business interruption losses, professional indemnity/errors & omissions, crime/fidelity losses, credit risk losses, pension trustee liabilities, employment-related liabilities, cyber risk losses, toxic tort and environmental liabilities, construction defects, government investigations, political risk and professional liabilities, to name a few. Our experience includes dealing with insurance policies issued from all the world’s major insurance markets for non-marine, marine, and aviation risks, including Lloyd’s of London.

Our lawyers also have raised awareness of insurance coverage issues through the continued submission to law reviews and leading legal and insurance publications of scores of learned articles and papers on complex issues of insurance law. Our lawyers also regularly present on insurance coverage issues at legal, industry, and client-specific seminars and conferences.

Our practice focuses on two key areas: representing policyholder clients in the analysis, litigation, and settlement of disputed coverage claims; and providing a variety of insurance counseling and advisory services to policyholder clients.
