KBR defends claims brought against domestic and non-domestic insurance agents and brokers in state and federal courts throughout the United States. These claims typically involve allegations of failure to place insurance, failure to maintain insurance, failure to procure appropriate coverages, failure “to advise,” and failure to obtain adequate limits. We also represent agents and brokers before state licensing, regulatory and disciplinary boards. In defending claims against insurance brokers and agents, it is critical that defense counsel have the knowledge, background and experience associated with the particular insurance coverage areas, be it property insurance, professional liability insurance or any other insurance class or specialty. KBR’s extensive insurance practice makes it uniquely suited to defend insurance brokers and agents in virtually all classes of insurance business.
KBR also acts as monitoring and coverage counsel on a nationwide basis for insurers issuing professional liability coverage to insurance agents and brokers, including in coverage litigation. We have extensive experience in all aspects of the underwriting and claims processes, including policy drafting, issues of agency law, binding authority, cover-holder disputes and surplus lines issues.
