Prince Yeates’ coverage attorneys regularly represent clients in environmental and mass tort coverage litigation on both local and national levels, and we serve as both local and national coordinating counsel. The Firm’s clients include domestic and international underwriters.

In addition, our attorneys are active in counseling insurance clients facing bad faith allegations and in defending bad faith suits. We are well known for our proficiency in defending such litigation in state and federal courts, both regionally and nationally. This reputation extends to the appellate level wherePrince Yeates’ attorneys have successfully preserved favorable trial court outcomes through their expertise in appellate briefing and argument at all levels.

We also have broad experience in the direct defense of insurance companies against claims of bad faith and fraud, and we have successfully defended matters of this nature on numerous occasions.

In addition, several of our lawyers also concentrate in the area of insurance coverage law, and we are frequently asked to analyze insurance policy language and render opinions on the scope and extent of an insurer’s responsibilities in underlying personal injury or casualty litigation. In this regard, we frequently serve as coverage counsel, and we regularly represent insurance carriers in declaratory judgment actions concerning coverage issues.
