The firm’s national and international subrogation practice represents most major insurers in the United States, British and French markets. Our goal is to maximize recovery potential by counseling our clients and providing hands-on analysis early on in the loss to ensure the best possible recovery is achieved. Our attorneys work in conjunction with our network of experts to make sure that vital evidence is preserved and that the appropriate factual and technical investigation is conducted.

The database can be tailored to meet the individual needs of each client, providing them with a real-time status report for each case.
