Carrier Representation

Our attorneys have the experience and skills needed to understand and analyze even the most complex insurance matters. When the exact interpretation of one line of text in an insurance policy can put your business on the line, you need experienced counsel with the knowledge to guide you in the right direction. We counsel and represent clients in all aspects of the law affecting the operations of an insurance related business, including evaluating exposure and assisting clients with steps needed to minimize risks. Some of the types of matters we have handled include serving as coverage counsel, defending carriers on extracontractual claims and defending agents and brokers, to name a few.

General Liability Insurance Defense

Sprott Newsom Quattlebaum Messenger is routinely retained by liability insurance carriers to represent their interests and protect the interests of their insureds in both state and federal courts from claims arising from General Liability Policies. We work to build a relationship with the insured to understand all pertinent aspects of our clients’ business, so that we can effectively represent them. We understand the importance of working closely with the claims department throughout the pendency of litigation through detailed and on-time reporting.

Our attorneys have successfully handled subrogation claims for a variety of insurers before and during litigation. The factors that are essential to a successful subrogation file are established by the early identification of legal and factual issues, the preservation of critical evidence, the retention of qualified expert witnesses, and if possible, soliciting early involvement from responsible third parties.
