The Insurance Coverage Team possesses extensive mediation and arbitration experience in the United States and abroad. Lawyers from the firm have acted as both counsel and as arbitrators in a variety of disputes, including arbitrations under the auspices of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA).
For example, we represented a major U.S. pharmaceutical company in “Bermuda Form” international arbitrations involving product liability losses exceeding several hundred million dollars. Our firm handled several London-based arbitrations for another major U.S. pharmaceutical company involving insurance coverage for product liability losses, also with amounts exceeding several hundred million dollars.
An Insurance Coverage Team partner also has an active practice as an international arbitrator, serving as arbitrator in London-based arbitrations involving disputes between major U.S. energy companies and their insurers for environmental losses, and in Bermuda-based arbitrations involving insurance coverage for a Fortune 100 Company’s employment discrimination claims.
