The attorneys at Sioli Alexander Pino understand the intricacy and details necessary to advise and represent insurance and reinsurance companies in coverage disputes. Our firm routinely assists national and international insurance carriers, reinsurers and third-party administrators with issues of policy coverage, interpretation and exclusions. The firm’s coverage expertise includes complex insurance opinions, reservation of rights, administrative responses and defense of bad faith litigation, if any.
Bad faith is a specialized subset of insurance law focusing on claim handling on a first and third party basis. On a first party basis, if an insurance company is deemed to have handled a claim in bad faith, certain jurisdictions allow for payment of the insured’s attorney’s fees, as well as other damages, including potentially punitive damages.
Sioli Alexander Pino defends directors, officers and professionals such as attorneys, physicians, nurses, accountants, engineers, architects, title agents, and mortgage brokers facing claims that they violated professional or ethical standards or engaged in criminal conduct. Our lawyers are equipped to handle the unique and complex level of legal, ethical, and reputational issues that arise in these types of malpractice claims.
