Areas of Practice

  • Insurance Coverage Litigation

Representative Matters

  • In a precedent setting decision, obtained summary judgment that New York’s common law strict “no-prejudice” rule barring coverage for late notice continues to apply to policies with New York choice of law clauses that are not subject to NY Ins. Law s. 3420 (which creates a prejudice requirement for certain policies) because those policies were issued and delivered outside of New York; therefore, insurer with policy issued and delivered outside of New York had no duty to defend or indemnify insured as a matter of New York law with respect to $10 million coverage for $40+ million in claims that were tendered to the insurer months and years late, and the insurer did not need to demonstrate prejudice.
