Environmental Insurance

Procurement, Claims and Litigation

Overview

Edgcomb Law Group, LLP lawyers have extensive experience working with insurance brokers to identify appropriate environmental insurance products, with appropriate terms and limits, to manage perceived environmental risks.   We work with brokers and underwriters to assist in assessing the relevant risks for the policy alternatives.  We then work closely with the underwriters in manuscripting policy language of both pollution legal liability policies and remediation cost cap insurance policies. Finally, after the policies are bound, we help clients stay in compliance with policy terms, make claims, and recover reimbursements.

When insurers fail to provide coverage or timely reimbursement, we litigate on behalf of insureds against insurers.  We have tried matters involving the buyout of environmental insurance policies.  Our attorneys have extensive experience in coverage issues involved in commercial pollution, clean up cost caps, contractors’ operations, contractors’ pollution, and pollution legal liability policies.
