Insurance Coverage and Defense
Many of our attorneys have represented businesses and insurance companies involved in insurance coverage disputes. These cases have involved disputes over policy language, pollution exclusions, triggers of coverage, covered occurrences, and endorsements, among other matters. One of the most notable cases in which we were involved is Unigard Security Ins. Co. v. Murphy Oil USA, Inc., 331 Ark. 211 (1998), which involved a coverage dispute that addressed a variety of insurance policy construction issues pertaining to damages arising from the contamination of real property and the resulting breach of a lease of the property. Claimed damages exceeded $8 million. We represented Unigard Insurance Company through the two-week trial and the appeal, which resulted in a dismissal of the complaint.
