This team is closely monitoring the legal uncertainties associated with the rapid development and spread of COVID-19 and its aftermath. With several potentially new coverage issues on the horizon, it is ready and available to assist with your COVID-19 and Business Interruption claims.  This includes keeping clients apprised of developments as they occur, developing protocols for early evaluation and assessment of claims, providing pre-litigation coverage analysis, as well as, handling litigation and appeals.
