Fields Howell is often called upon to handle business disputes between insurers and their business partners. Often times these cases involve coverholders operating outside of their underwriting and claims authority to the insurers detriment. Whether accidental or intentional, the actions of business agents have significant consequences and often cost insurers significant money. Because of our unique knowledge of underwriting practices and coverholder operations, we can often resolve these claims without the necessity of litigation. When litigation is necessary, however, we have successfully pursued and recovered on behalf of insurers when a coverholder makes a mistake.
