Insurance Coverage and Disputes – Our team regularly handles cases and disputes involving insurance coverage, and a variety of regulatory insurance matters before the state of Tennessee. Frequently, insurance coverage issues arise in the context of a declaratory judgment action, and we have represented both the insurer and the insured in such cases. We also have represented insurance agents and companies in suits involving agency issues such as commission disputes, terminations and claims of breach of covenants not to compete. Our litigators work closely with our corporate and insurance regulation attorneys to draw upon all aspects of the firm's insurance experience.
