Insurance defense has been a cornerstone of Baker, Kinsman, Hollis, Clelland & Hogue since our founding. Our insurance defense attorneys routinely represent major insurance companies, small and mid-size insurers, self-insured organizations, and risk retention groups. Our attorneys have the skill, experience, and resources to mount an effective defense in the most complex insurance litigation, as well as the ability to efficiently handle everyday matters.
Our skilled insurance defense lawyers offer clients the highest level of legal service and consultation. Our extensive history handling insurance defense litigation includes issues of coverage, bad faith, and first and third party casualty losses. In addition to our experience handling insurance defense litigation, our attorneys routinely resolve insurance disputes through arbitration and mediation.
In any insurance defense case, our focus is two-fold. First and foremost, we are devoted to representing the best interests of the insured. Secondarily, but of equal importance, we desire to make the jobs of adjusters and claims professionals as easy as possible through: (1) timely reporting; (2) early case analysis including an evaluation of exposure; (3) frequent communication; and (4) personal relationships with claims professionals to establish trust and a cooperative effort to resolve cases. We understand the duties owed by an insurance company to its insureds to timely and fairly adjust claims. We make every effort to assist claims professionals in doing so.
Our clients benefit our team of professionals who are dedicated to finding solutions and developing proactive approaches to the challenges and issues facing the insurance industry and insureds. Whether providing a quick response to a single issue or on-going assistance for a long-term project, our clients' needs are evaluated on an individual basis to determine how we can most efficiently meet them.
