Insurance and Reinsurance

WWM’s sophisticated understanding of the insurance industry enables our lawyers to provide high-level legal analysis and advice on insurance issues across multiple lines of business including Directors & Officers, Lawyers Professional Liability and other professional E&O, First Party Property, Casualty, Life/Disability, and Accident and Health. We represents insurers in litigation around the country, often involving significant alleged exposure to our clients, sophisticated legal issues and multiple lines of coverages.

Our attorneys are familiar with policies of all types, including primary and excess insurance, fronting, first party property and third party liability policies. We work with clients to draft new wordings, prepare and assess claims handling guidelines and counsel on risk management. Our attorneys have earned a reputation among domestic and international insurers for excellence, dependability and service.

Reinsurance is a specialized but critical component of the insurance industry. Its unique terms, custom and practice and dispute resolution require a concentration and dedication that several WWM lawyers possess. Our attorneys represent domestic and international clients in all aspects of reinsurance including coverage analysis, claims and reserving evaluation, audits, arbitration, litigation and commutations. We have dealt with many of the issues confronting reinsurers and ceding companies such as annualized limits, aggregation and allocation of losses, late notice and letters of credit.
