In today’s climate of deregulation, globalization and natural disasters, complex legal challenges for insurers are on the rise. Addressing these legal challenges, establishing risk assessment and avoidance strategies and pursuing potential litigation when necessary requires the knowledge and experience of skilled legal professionals.
Holland & Knight’s Insurance Team has a long history of helping clients anticipate risks and protect their interests. We have an in-depth understanding of the insurance industry and the challenges involved. We recognize the critical importance of insurance and the protections it affords employees, customers, corporate assets and future business operations.
Our team represents domestic insurers with U.S. and foreign operations as well as foreign insurers doing business in the U.S. We advise life, P&C and health insurers, as well as reinsurers, captive insurers, financial institutions, investment banks and financial intermediaries in connection with regulatory and transactional matters.
Additionally, our insurance lawyers provide strategic guidance on compliance, product development and distribution, authorization and licensing and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, including the creation of a new Federal Insurance Office.
Our team guides clients through risk management analyses, including best practices and compliance reviews. This guidance in turn minimizes disputes and enforcement actions by covering regulatory matters, corporate governance, regulatory requirements, taxation, insolvencies and governmental investigations. Additionally, we regularly counsel clients on underwriting, claims handling and litigation matters related to traditional and new insurance products.
From insurance coverage disputes and high-stakes litigation to policy analysis, coverage interpretation and risk management counsel, our team collaborates with attorneys throughout the firm to protect the interests of clients around the world.
Because litigation can be costly and time consuming, our team attempts to resolve disputes at the earliest possible stage. However, if litigation is in our client’s best interest or cannot be otherwise avoided, we have the experience and knowledge necessary to take the matter to court or arbitration. We have litigated and arbitrated disputes for insurers associated with nearly every aspect of insurance law, regulatory compliance and coverage issues, including:
