Selman Breitman has developed a reputation as one of the most prominent coverage firms in California. In fact, insurance companies from all over the United States rely on the firm for interpretation of policies and analysis of obligations, duties, rights and remedies with regard to issues arising from contract interpretation.
Proper analysis of insurance policies, whether they be comprehensive general liability policies, errors and omissions, directors and officers, professional services liability, employer's liability, travel insurance, homeowners, auto, or any other type of form, is an essential part of a carrier's business. The correct coverage decision can save defense fees and indemnification costs, and limit the company's exposure to extracontractual damages. Our appointment by certain carriers as regional coverage counsel recognizes our expertise in this area and the importance we attach to prompt, proper and realistic coverage analysis.
Selman Breitman provides coverage opinions and consultations on subjects dealing with all lines of coverage throughout the United States. Beyond the policies listed above, the firm also specializes in areas as diverse and specialized as entertainment, media, healthcare, environmental, construction, garage, and auto dealership coverage issues.
We have significant expertise and experience in defending our insurance carrier clients in court, litigating both coverage issues and defending carriers in bad faith cases. We also have an impressive documented record of success in the trial and appellate courts of our state, helping to establish favorable coverage law for the insurance industry as a whole, including work in the Court of Appeal, California Supreme Court and Federal Circuit Courts of Appeal.
Within our extensive insurance coverage practice, the firm combines its broad experience and strategic planning skills with highly efficient execution to achieve the best possible outcomes for clients and has earned a first-rate reputation among insurance and reinsurance companies alike.
