CAT-LAW: Managing Insurance Claims in the Wake of Catastrophe

Zelle LLP attorneys have advised insurers in dealing with nearly every major insurance-related catastrophe of the 21st Century, including the 9/11 Terrorist Attack, Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, Hurricane Ike, The Great Japan Earthquake, the 2011 Thailand Floods, Superstorm Sandy, and the Port of Tianjin explosion.  We have also assisted our clients with claims and litigation related to countless fires, explosions, collapses, hailstorms and tornadoes. 

Our Cat-Law experience includes federal and state court litigation, arbitrations, appraisals and mediations around the country and around the world, dealing with coverage disputes, property damage measurements, repair and replacement timeline battles, Business Interruption and Contingent Business Interruption disputes and valuations, and major subrogation matters.

When catastrophic insurance losses are caused by Mother Nature, geologic activity or human conduct, our knowledge and experience is unsurpassed with respect to coverage issues, measurement disputes, and litigation, arbitration, appraisal, and mediation strategies.
