Extra Contractual

Coverage issues often arise in extra-contractual claims and involve arguments that the insurer either misinterpreted or misapplied the insurance contract.

Our attorneys have developed significant experience over many years of litigating claims and associated issues for a variety of types and lines of insurance. From extra-contractual claims of spoliation, failure to proceed and negligent entrustment to coverage claims that either stem from an extra-contractual lawsuit or act as a separate, stand-alone claim, our team of lawyers is well-equipped to handle these claims and seek swift resolution.

For decades, members of our insurance defense team have provided litigation and alternative dispute resolution services to various insurance companies. We proudly represent nationally recognized Fortune 500 companies as well as smaller, community-based carriers in the defense of extra-contractual claims. And with five offices strategically located across Tennessee and Arkansas, we are geographically well-positioned to assist clients throughout the Mid-South.
