Bradley’s Insurance Practice Group has the depth of industry experience to effectively handle all types of sophisticated insurance matters from across the U.S. Our insurance attorneys provide counsel on routine issues with maximum efficiency and develop creative solutions for more-complex legal problems. The team places the utmost priority on delivering the highest level of quality in both our client service and our work product.

Based on the BTI Power Rankings 2016 report, Bradley is pleased to be named a “Go-To Outside Counsel” firm for insurance legal services by general counsel, as well as a firm they would recommend to their peers.

The firm has extensive experience in dealing with ERISA issues and handles all types of dispute resolution, including litigation, pre-litigation counseling and negotiations, arbitration, appraisal, and mediation. We provide counsel for any type of claim, from contract, fraud, and bad faith claims to defense of sales practices, rating and underwriting practices, and regulatory compliance matters. Our work frequently encompasses class actions, opt-out litigation, multidistrict litigation, and coordinated mass action proceedings, and we handle federal and state trials and appeals nationwide.

Among our diverse group of clients are leading life, health, and disability insurance companies; fixed and variable annuity issuers; and brokers and agencies. We also advise insurance companies, reinsurance companies, managing general agents, reinsurance intermediaries, and insurance agencies and brokers on transactional matters, including acquisitions, divestitures, and reorganizations, as well as with insurance and securities regulatory compliance issues, product development and approval, and governmental relations.

Our Insurance Practice Group comprises attorneys with a diverse set of practice focuses, including insurance litigation, class action, appellate, regulatory, securities, mergers and acquisitions, government relations, employment, and corporate law. Many of our insurance lawyers have worked in-house for insurers, earning valuable direct experience with the operations of our clients. We are also active in many insurance industry associations and trade groups, which enables us to stay at the forefront of current trends and issues affecting the insurance sector.
Bradley’s Insurance Practice Group represents life, health, and disability insurers, as well as annuity companies, in a variety of litigation matters before state and federal courts, U.S. Courts of Appeal, and the United States Supreme Court. Our work includes litigation involving coverage issues, policyholder disputes, ERISA, sales practices, fraud and bad faith, and rating and underwriting practices. We have extensive experience in representing insurers in class actions, coordinated mass action, and appeals, where we often work to oppose class certification and follow other strategies to mitigate risk and seek favorable outcomes.

While we aim to resolve disputes through pre-litigation counseling and negotiations, arbitration, and mediation whenever possible, we are aggressive in defending our clients’ interests and have a demonstrated track record of success both in and out of the courtroom.
Our attorneys have deep practical knowledge of the broad range of regulatory issues that affect the insurance business. We advise insurance companies, reinsurance companies, managing general agents, reinsurance intermediaries, and insurance agencies and brokers on numerous matters, including state insurance department inquiries, examinations, holding company compliance, insurance insolvencies, and rate and form filings. Our team also counsels clients in connection with the licensing of traditional carriers, third-party administrators, agents, brokers, and claims adjusters. In addition, we advise on the structure and formation of captive insurance companies, risk retention groups, purchasing groups, group funds, and other alternative risk transfer vehicles.
Bradley’s attorneys leverage their deep industry experience to help insurers and related entities grow and sustain their business operations. We partner with our clients on the acquisition of other companies or portfolios of business, which can involve public mergers. We also have incorporated, organized, and licensed insurance companies to underwrite various types of insurance, including health; prescription drug; professional, automobile, and general liability; and worker’s compensation. This work includes advising committees regarding corporate governance, obtaining approvals from state insurance departments, preparing securities disclosure and filing documents, and securing certificates of authority to operate as an insurance company.
Our insurance attorneys build and maintain relationships with government officials at state and federal levels, allowing us to assist clients in monitoring legislative activity, drafting legislation, and lobbying in connection with proposed changes in legislation and administrative rule-making.
