Our lawyers handle a wide variety of reinsurance disputes with stakes into the hundreds of millions of dollars. Our clients have ranged from a reinsurer listed on the NYSE to substantially smaller companies. While some of these engagements, particularly those involving arbitration proceedings or advice, require confidentiality, the subject matters have included reinsurance for life and annuity policies, liability and first party property insurance, finite risk, and other lines of coverage. We have handled reinsurance matters in arbitration, mediation and court, and have represented both cedents and reinsurers.
The Coverage Team, for example, represents Transamerica Corporation in connection with environmental matters involving its captives; it also represented Transamerica in complex litigation with a former subsidiary regarding insurance purchased as part of a consolidated risk management structure from a captive insurer and a formerly-affiliated casualty insurer.
