Reinsurance Dispute Attorneys
Reinsurance disputes can be extremely complex and result in disputes over the types of losses the policy covers and whether the primary insurance company properly investigated the claim.
At the law firm of Cox Padmore Skolnik & Shakarchy LLP, our lawyers represent both primary insurers and reinsurers in all types of reinsurance litigation. Our status as an interdisciplinary and multinational firm allows us to handle complex reinsurance disputes and cross-border claims. From locations in New York City, New Jersey and Denver, we represent clients worldwide.
Reinsurance provides insurance companies a way to manage risk. Under a reinsurance contract, the reinsurance company agrees to pay a share of the claims incurred by the primary insurance company. In exchange, the reinsurer is paid a reinsurance premium by the primary insurer.
The following are examples of the types of issues we handle:
- Contract coverage and interpretation
- Disputes over claims
- Breaches of contract
- Arbitration and mediation
- Claims investigation
- Whether a reinsurance company has sufficient reserves to pay losses
- Bankruptcy and insolvency
Our attorneys are experienced in evaluating insurance company records to make sure a primary insurance company or reinsurer is doing everything it has an obligation to do.
