Covering every aspect of your Insurance matter
Larzelere Picou Wells Simpson Lonero, LLC has an insurance practice usually found only at much larger law firms. We are dedicated to offering our clients a better level of service – more efficiently and more personally – than our larger counterparts. Our insurance coverage lawyers have diverse backgrounds, which provides our clients a broad base of extensive experience in different areas of insurance law and various jurisdictions. As a result, our insurance coverage practice, while concentrated in Louisiana and the Gulf South, spans the entire United States and beyond.
We have significant knowledge and experience with all manner of primary, excess, and umbrella/bumbershoot liability policies, as well as policies affording first-party coverage. We provide comprehensive services ranging from advice on underwriting and policy language, drafting manuscript and form language, issuing coverage opinions, preparing reservation of rights correspondence, and negotiating claim settlements outside of litigation, to defending insurers in direct action litigation, representing insurers in declaratory judgment actions and other coverage litigation, and continuing through appeals. We also handle pursuit of subrogation claims, including claims with values of hundreds of millions of dollars.
