A trusted partner to insurers who depend on O’Melveny to keep down costs by fighting insureds’ liability in covered claims, we have helped clients resolve a wide range of insurance coverage cases.

Combining broad experience and strategic planning skills with efficient execution, international collaboration, and targeted budgeting, our focus is always on our clients and their objectives. We excel in complex matters with significant repercussions and precedent-setting trials and appeals.

In addition to defending huge mass tort cases involving asbestos, pharmaceuticals, and environmental damage, we have successfully tried insurance coverage cases, argued summary judgment motions, and prosecuted appeals around the country. Our team also represents insurers in bankruptcy court, where policyholders try to liquidate coverage as they restructure their mass tort liabilities. With only a few firms with our level of experience representing insurers in bankruptcy court, we have been involved in nearly every major case of this kind over the last half dozen years.
