Our lawyers, based in New Orleans, were at the heart of the mass litigation that resulted from Hurricane Katrina. For a decade, we represented the insurer with the largest number of impacted policyholders in South Louisiana. Through creative and thoughtful strategies, our lawyers helped our clients navigate novel and complex issues in an unfriendly legal environment and developed a path to the resolution of many thousands of claims.
With our unique skill set, we have assisted insurers across the Gulf South with mass claims arising out of several other catastrophes. Often, we have found that, these claims are driven by public adjusters and “storm chaser experts” who may work together to inflate claims and take advantage of insureds. We have developed an assertive approach to discovering such efforts and minimizing their effect on the insurer’s ability to adjust and resolve catastrophe claims.
