INSURANCE AGENT & BROKER REPRESENTATION
The firm's agents and brokers practice is focused upon three areas:
(1) Defense of errors and omissions claims made against insurance agents and brokers;
(2) Advice to agents and brokers regarding regulatory and other non-litigation issues; and
(3) Representing agents and brokers before regulatory bodies and at insurance arbitrations.
Additionally, the firm makes itself available to agents and brokers to assist their clients in addressing coverage issues and, where necessary, pursuing litigation of their coverage claims. The firm also provides advice to insurance brokers on compliance and wording issues.
Representing agents and brokers requires not only a knowledge of the governing law, but also knowledge of the industry and the practices and working environment in which agents and brokers function. Nicoletti Hornig & Sweeney partners in charge of the Agents and Brokers practice have in excess of 15 years of experience handling agents and brokers errors and omission claims, addressing commercial and regulatory issues faced by agents and brokers, and analyzing and litigating coverage issues through trial in both the State and Federal courts.
