Insurance Coverage Law
Meissner Tierney Fisher & Nichols SC
The firm’s insurance coverage group has represented insurers in comprehensive litigation, mediations and arbitrations on a wide variety of complex legal matters. The attorneys in the insurance coverage group are known and recognized, both locally and nationally, as leaders in the insurance coverage arena by not only industry professionals and clients, but also their own peers. The group has collectively litigated coverage disputes throughout the country before state and federal trial and appellate courts, including disputes over insureds’ coverage interests in federal bankruptcy courts and related adversary proceedings. Whether it involves advising or representing clients on a wide range of coverage issues such as general, excess and umbrella liability, environmental liability, products liability, property coverage, professional liability, health care liability, tort liability, directors and officers liability, bad faith liability or reinsurance, the group has been involved in many high-profile and high-stakes coverage matters that have helped shape the legal landscape of coverage law in Wisconsin and across the country.
With the ever-growing role that insurance coverage plays in today’s business environment, the insurance coverage group knows that staying current on emerging trends is key to understanding the complex legal issues that are often encountered at all stages of an insurance dispute. The attorneys regularly update, train and advise their insurance clients on important legal and legislative updates that impact the insurance industry as a whole. Specifically, the group’s litigation head, Michael J. Cohen, has appeared before both the state assembly and senate on behalf of the insurance industry in opposition to proposed legislation regarding insurance coverage for the clean-up of the Fox River and other navigable rivers in Wisconsin. No matter what stage of the dispute, our clients look to us for innovative, practical, and effective representation to achieve superior results, often in opposition to some of the largest businesses in the country.
