Insurance Litigation

Betancourt, Van Hemmen, Greco & Kenyon LLC regularly handles insurance matters for both insurers and insureds, including the litigation of first party claims and insurance coverage actions, protecting the interests of excess insurers during the defense of covered claims, and advising business entities on strategies for maximizing their insurance claim recoveries when faced with an insurer’s reservation of rights and/or denial of coverage. We fully grasp the strategic challenges and opportunities that arise out of coverage issues flowing from the insurance of mobile risks.

We regularly appear in court to obtain declaratory judgments clarifying insurers’ obligations to their insureds and to obtain stays of litigations when filed in inconvenient or unrelated jurisdictions for the purpose of gaining strategic advantage. We recently negotiated a multi-million dollar settlement on behalf of an LHWCA compensation paying entity for reimbursement of yearly U.S. Department of Labor assessments under a series of comprehensive marine general liability policies.

Betancourt, Van Hemmen, Greco & Kenyon LLC provides sophisticated, nuanced insurance coverage advice and aggressive, effective insurance litigation services, when litigation is required.
