 Insurance Coverage Litigation and Consulting

Attorneys serving clients across the U.S. and abroad

At Kern Wooley, P.C., our firm has focused our legal services on a broad spectrum of insurance issues for nearly four decades.  Our clients include brokers, insurers, policyholders, and reinsurers in the U.S., as well as the London and Bermuda markets, self-insured corporations, and third party administrators.


We represent insurers and industry organizations in claims, underwriting, and regulatory matters, as well as in complex settlements and transactions. The strength of our ongoing insurance industry representation can be seen in our client base. We represent some of the largest insurance companies based in the United States, as well as companies based in the London and Bermuda markets. 

Staying abreast of ever-changing insurance laws and blending years of combined experience gives our attorneys a distinct advantage in advising clients with a myriad of legal conflicts in connection with policies of every type:

  • Commercial general liability (CGL)
  • Professional liability
  • Directors and officers’ liability
  • Aviation
  • Excess (umbrella) and surplus lines

The insurance defense and litigation matters with which we regularly assist clients include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • General claims advice and guidance
  • Coverage opinions & analysis
  • Valuation and policy drafting
  • Bad faith claims
  • Defense of insureds
  • Multi-district & consolidated claims
  • First and third party claims
  • Insurance coverage litigation
  • Regulatory issues
  • Reinsurance

Broad based experience allows our lawyers to aggressively defend claims against insurers and their insured and assist them with novel and complex insurance coverage issues, including medical monitoring claims, mass tort claims, multiple insurer apportionment, direct right of action by an excess insurer against a primary insurer, self-insured retentions, and claims arising from advertising and business injury. For self-insured clients, the services our attorneys provide often serve as the important first line of defense against liability exposure and also include third party administration services.

Through decades of handling countless insurance issues, our law firm has compiled an extensive library, encompassing laws in jurisdictions throughout the United States and worldwide. Our collection of resources gives us ready access and the ability to conduct legal analyses in a cost-efficient, timely manner. 

Our clients confidently rely on our expertise to realistically assess each claim to determine the best course of action and resolve claims and conflicts in a reasonable and expeditious manner.  We seek practical business-oriented solutions, whenever possible, whether through negotiated settlements or alternative dispute resolution methods. However, if necessary, our trial attorneys are always prepared to aggressively defend our clients’ interests in state and federal courts throughout the United States. 

When your company needs high caliber legal defense to meet your objectives, contact Kern Wooley, P.C. at 310-824-1777, where we blend expertise in insurance law and aggressive litigation with steadfast protection of your interests and a commitment to positive outcomes.

"Our philosophy and commitment are quite simple - to realistically and economically evaluate each assignment, and to seek the appropriate resolution in the most reasonable, cost efficient and expeditious manner."
