Overview

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. We also provide counsel in the recognition and resolution of coverage issues, including representation in all types of insurance coverage litigation and the defense of bad faith and other extra contractual claims.

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. We also periodically send out Reminger Reports to our clients to alert them of a potentially significant case impacting relevant coverage issues. Our firm routinely presents seminars designed to keep our clients abreast of developments in insurance law and to provide advice on effective claims handling practices so as to avoid implications of bad faith.

Our firm has the capacity and experience to represent insurance carriers on 'cutting edge' insurance issues. Some recent examples of our representation involve the defense of the application of the intentional act exclusion relative to derivative liability claims, application of the standard and absolute pollution exclusion, determination of the number of occurrences and allocation issues arising from catastrophic losses, and application of notice provisions in both occurrence and claims made policies. We are proud of the fact that this firm has been involved in the adjudication of important insurance coverage issues in state supreme courts on multiple occasions. Our expertise and experience in insurance coverage matters covers both first party and third party insurance policies, including specialized insurance products issued to either individuals, small businesses or large corporations, and professional entities.

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 an officer 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.
