Insurance Coverage

Our Insurance Coverage Litigation Group attorneys have substantial experience representing clients in insurance coverage litigation. We have pursued insurance coverage claims for clients in a wide range of industries, including aluminum, banking, chemicals, consumer products, manufacturing, mining, retail and wholesale, scrap, steel, transportation and utility industries.

We have been responsible for several precedent setting court decisions in this area of practice, and have represented clients in many state and federal courts throughout the U.S. in insurance coverage suits. Cohen & Grigsby attorneys also counsel and assist clients during the insurance claims process, and have resolved many matters at that stage.
