Managing risk and protecting your business are key elements of our insurance law practice. Our team has decades of sophisticated, nationwide experience in the vital task of helping businesses best manage their risk, both in handling liability defense strategies and resolving insurance coverage matters.
At Jaffe, our emphasis is on aggressive liability defense in aid of our clients’ risk management programs and, as a part of that, we regularly work with our clients’ insurers to defend claims. We represent our clients’ interests nationwide against claims of all kinds, including personal injury, premises liability, commercial general liability, professional liability, construction-related claims, directors’ and officers’ liability, and property damage.
Our work often starts before claims are brought or lawsuits are filed and it extends beyond individual matters to general claims consulting, coverage analysis, and providing advice and guidance on acquiring and maintaining the proper insurance program. When coverage disputes arise, we have vast experience to offer – both policyholders and insurers — with comprehensive advice regarding commercial and personal lines of insurance. And, we will uphold your interests by litigating declaratory actions to resolve those disputes, when necessary.
Jaffe attorneys are seasoned and respected litigators with an enviable track record of success in jury trials, bench trials, binding arbitration cases, and mediated insurance disputes all over the country. Large national businesses trust us to manage their risks efficiently, thoroughly, and cost-effectively. We make a point of understanding the nature and scope of your business in order to best advise you on your current insurance needs and to help foresee problems that could arise in the future.
