Litigation

Litigation is never the first resort, and even as the last resort it is fraught with costs and risks.  Our Litigation team of skilled and seasoned attorneys regularly appears on behalf of domestic and foreign clients in courts and tribunals across the United States and abroad, skillfully presenting complex cases through trial and, when necessary, appeal.  But, just as important, Skarzynski Black approaches all of our litigations with practical business savvy. Our goal is always to help clients resolve disputes in ways that are both cost-effective and consistent with their business objectives.
 
We are well-known for our experience and success in litigating—and creatively resolving where possible— cases on behalf of our insurance company clients.  We are proud of our reputation for skilled representation in cases that routinely involve policy limits questions measured in the tens-of-millions of dollars, where questions of coverage, rescission and bad faith frequently present.  Our understanding of the intricacies of claims handling and loss adjustment gives us a unique perspective when prosecuting a declaratory action, defending a bad faith action, or pursuing subrogation rights in the name of our client.
 
Our litigation skill and success is far broader than representation of insurance companies, as our many public and private commercial clients can attest.   Successfully representing a wide range of industries such as securities broker dealers, sales/marketing companies, industrial manufactures, hedge funds, aircraft leasing companies, commercial banks, and technology companies in contractual, tort and statutory actions, our team has the judgment and practical business experience to help clients choose the best path for each case.
