The complexity and potential long term ramifications arising from insurance coverage litigation not only requires a global understanding of insurance law, but often demands a creative and innovative problem solving approach.

At Reminger, our members of the insurance coverage group offer a variety of services to our clients when confronted with insurance coverage issues. We offer advice in drafting policy language to effectively address some of the unique nuances of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana law and aid in the evaluation of coverage issues. We provide representation in all types of insurance coverage litigation and the defense of bad faith and other extra contractual claims arising from insurance coverage issues.

Because of the growing sophistication of the policyholder bar, the Reminger Insurance Coverage Group conducts monthly meetings to keep abreast of the most recent developments of insurance law on local, state, and national levels. In addition, our firm routinely presents seminars designed to keep our clients' abreast of insurance law and provide advice on effective claims handling when confronted with a coverage issue.

Our firm has the capacity and experience to represent insurance carriers on 'cutting edge' insurance issues. Some examples of recent topics of representation involve the defense of pollution claims under the standard pollution exclusion, absolute pollution exclusion and intentional act exclusion; the application of the notice provision in both occurrence based and claims made policies; application of the intentional act exclusion to derivative claims against an employer for the negligent hiring, training and supervision arising from the intentional acts of employees; insurance coverage of intentional employer/employee torts under stop gap endorsement provisions; litigation of trigger and allocation issues in matters involving delayed manifestation claims covering multiple policy periods; and bad faith and coverage claims practices.

We have members of the insurance coverage group represented in each of our offices for effective representation on all insurance coverage concerns. Our practice group co-chair currently serves as the Vice President of the EC Defense Network, which was established to provide a nationwide network of attorneys specializing in the defense of insurance companies against bad faith claims.
