Cooksey, Toolen, Gage, Duffy & Woog has paved the way to creative and efficient handling of general tort liability claims in the insurance industry by emphasizing its major goals of cost-effective case handling without compromising a quality work product or the defense of the insured. Our attorneys have maintained close relationships with hundreds of insurance companies over the years. This is made possible through our commitment to delivering excellent results not only in the courtroom, but also in alternative dispute resolution forums with accountability, trustworthiness and integrity, the hallmark of our success.
Our representation of those insured by these companies consists of a wide variety of cases including commercial liability, premises liability, professional malpractice, commercial trucking and vehicle liability, products liability, defamation, assault and battery, real estate and easement disputes, construction defect litigation and elder abuse cases. We continue to be a leader in the industry in our representation of target defendants in various class action matters and complex litigation, and of insurers in bad faith litigation. Our attorneys also handle cases involving the defense of companies who are alleged to have participated in unfair competition/unfair business practices under section 17200 of the California Business and Professions Code.
Our expertise in insurance coverage and our history of proven experience in the courtroom pays dividends in providing reliable and early preliminary liability and damage analysis, allowing the insurer to quickly set reserves for indemnity and defense, often leading to early, successful resolution.
