Environmental Insurance Recovery
McMahon DeGulis attorneys develop and implement innovative legal strategies to obtain insurance coverage to reimburse clients for environmental remediation costs. We have found coverage under numerous types of policies, including commercial general liability, homeowners, property and business interruption, environmental impairment liability, errors and omissions and builders risk.
Our insurance recovery group has successfully represented public and private corporations, private equity firms, commercial real estate owners, municipal entities and individual policyholders. The firm recently achieved a favorable settlement in a coverage litigation involving a major environmental insurer.
Our team also develops successful strategies to find lost policies, through the retention of insurance archeologists, and then to recover costs under those policies. For example, we obtained a defense commitment in a Superfund matter from a general liability insurer for policies from the late 1940’s and early 1950’s.
