Insurance Defence

We represent insurers on defence, subrogation, and coverage matters. We provide advice and representation on behalf of insurers with respect to errors and omissions, commercial general liability, business interruption insurance, directors and officers insurance and personal lines policies (home and auto). Our work in commercial litigation and construction law brings a depth of experience to our insurance files.
