Insurance Recovery and Litigation

BETTER RECOVERIES Result from better preparation

You’ve been paying your insurance premiums for years and when you finally need your policy, your coverage falls short. Or worse, your claim was denied. We know how frustrating this is.


HMB attorneys have extensive experience representing policyholders on insurance coverage, claim issues and disputes. We regularly counsel clients on various aspects of insurance coverage for their businesses, which includes when businesses are facing a threat or denial of their insurance coverage. We’ve also represented insurers and understand their process and how they think.

We have assisted numerous clients in securing coverage for both first party and third-party claims—whether pre-litigation resolution, federal or state court proceedings and/or alternative dispute resolution.


Often your dispute can be settled out of court. But that’s not always the case. When you work with HMB’s Insurance Advisory attorneys, you work with successful trial attorneys who know what it takes to try a case. From the beginning, we position your case and implement strategies with success at trial in mind. By understanding how to successfully try a matter, we can position your case for success, whether that be through trial or settlement.

We represent policyholders both nationally and internationally on their complex insurance claims, including:


  • Commercial Insurance Coverage Disputes
  • Property & Casualty Claims
  • Business Interruption Claims
  • Insurer & Insured Conflicts
  • Class Actions
  • Multi-State & International/Concurrent Jurisdictional Claims
  • Product Liability
  • Fidelity Bonds
  • Bankers Blanket Bonds
  • D&O Policy Claims
  • Breach of Fiduciary Duty
