Innovative and Cost-Effective Solutions

The lawyers at KDV combine knowledge of insurance laws and regulations with an in-depth understanding of the industry to provide cost-effective, cutting-edge counsel. Our attorneys’ diverse backgrounds and experience also deepen our understanding of the complex substantive issues that often underlie and drive insurance coverage disputes.

Each insurance coverage attorney at our firm is committed to seeking sound business solutions to coverage cases through early assessment and proactive efforts, including direct negotiation with claimants and alternative dispute resolution. Our attorneys are skilled in litigating declaratory judgment, breach of insurance contract, and bad faith actions brought by insureds and putative insureds in both the first-party and third-party contexts. When appropriate, we will file dispositive motions, and in the continued absence of a pre-trial resolution, we vigorously litigate our clients’ cases in court.. We also handle coverage disputes involving other primary insurers, re-insurers and excess carriers.

This trust and respect from our insurance carrier clients has prompted carriers to frequently endorse our firm on numerous policies as the first and only option.
