Insurance Coverage Matters

Disputes over insurance coverage are more than mere contract claims. Policies are complex and often confusing contracts that are further affected by arcane statutory schemes and judicially created rules of interpretation.

The insurance team at Gilbert & Renton represents corporate, municipal, and individual policyholders in disputes with their insurers in both the first-party and third-party context. We have represented clients in coverage matters in more than 40 states and internationally.
