Insurance defense has been a cornerstone of Hosp, Gilbert & Bergsten since our founding in 1984. Our insurance defense attorneys routinely represent major insurance companies, small and mid-size insurers, self-insured organizations, and risk retention groups. We regularly defend clients in complex multi-carrier litigation involving additional insured and insurer obligations. Our attorneys have the skill, experience, and resources to mount an effective defense in the most complex insurance litigation, as well as the ability efficiently handle routine insurance coverage disputes.

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.

Our clients benefit from a cross-departmental team of professionals 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.

Our insurance defense attorneys devote a significant amount of time to issues involving motor vehicle related claims, product liability litigation, toxic torts, professional liability claims, directors’ & officers’, arson and insurance fraud defense, asbestos litigation, premises liability, general insurance coverage questions, and construction accident matters. We have had significant success in insurance defense matters related to general liability, excess, umbrella, and first-party policies. Due to our firm’s experience in each of these areas, we are able to successfully and cost-effectively resolve many insurance defense matters in the early stages of litigation.
