Insurance Coverage/Insurance Defense

The firm is listed in the prestigious A. M. Best Company’s Directory of Recommended Insurance Attorneys, and handles cases in the field of insurance coverage. The firm has successfully represented its clients in insurance coverage matters before all State and Federal courts in Massachusetts.

The firm provides legal services to insurers in the defense of both first-party and third-party claims. The firm handles matters ranging from multi-party product liability and environmental cases, general liability claims, automotive claims, liquor liability defense, defense of mass torts, including asbestos litigation, insurance coverage disputes, employment claims, complex business litigation, to the defense of professional liability claims. The firm represents insurance companies in first-party reference proceedings commenced under Mass. Gen. L. c. 175.

Subrogation

Subrogation enables insurance companies to recover funds from negligent parties who are liable and who should be held accountable. The firm has an extensive subrogation practice in a wide range of areas, including: fire damage, mold, water damage, freeze damage, construction defects, contractor negligence, environmental contamination, and workers’ compensation. Because of the firm’s extensive experience in handling complex litigation matters, we are able to provide highly effective representation of our clients in subrogation matters.  Over the years, the firm has developed a reputation both regionally and nationally for aggressive handling of subrogation matters and our commitment to providing excellent results for our clients. The firm handles complex, high stakes cases regionally and nationally on a pro hac vice basis.

Personal Injury

The firm handles a wide range of cases at all stages of litigation.  Cases involve: traumatic brain injury, wrongful death, automobile accidents, truck accidents, fire, explosion and electrocution accidents, railroad accidents, product liability involving construction equipment, motor vehicles, bicycles, recreational equipment, flammable fabrics, premises liability, general liability, negligent security, gas explosions, tree cutting, personal injury, liquor liability, dram shop and other matters.  The firm has a particular expertise with litigation involving complex medical, scientific and engineering principles, and has achieved excellent results for its clients.

Toxic and Mass Torts

From its inception, the firm has represented clients in claims of exposure to toxins, including asbestos, lead, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

Construction Defects

Construction defects give rise to a number of claims, including personal injury, product liability, professional liability, subrogation, insurance coverage and personal injury.

Business Disputes

The firm handles the defense and prosecution of business disputes on both an hourly and, for appropriate cases, a contingent fee basis.  With respect to the usage of contingent fees in business disputes, the firm recognizes that, no matter how strong the claim may be, its business clients are sometimes hesitant to undertake litigation due to the expenses involved.  The firm’s contingent fee arrangement addresses this issue so that business clients pay no legal fee unless the firm is successful in recovering on your behalf.  We also offer a hybrid hourly/contingent fee arrangement wherein we prosecute the claim at a reduced hourly rate coupled with a reduced contingency fee.
