After working as a partner in a national insurance firm, David Roe now provides aggressive, focused representation in insurance coverage, general liability, automobile insurance, rental car insurance and professional liability coverage issues to insurance companies, business and individuals. As author of Illinois Automobile Insurance Law published by Thomson/West, David wrote the book on insurance coverage in Illinois. He has also created numerous Illinois CLE seminars with www.ApexCLE.com.
From detailed coverage opinions to declaratory actions, David represents clients in Chicago, Illinois, and other states in insurance matters including general liability, car insurance and complex toxic tort litigation involving duty to defend, high limit insurance coverage, allocation and priority of payment issues, ranging from under $1 million to over $600 million.
Clients have included insurance companies, businesses in insurance disputes, attorneys seeking coverage under professional liability policies, individuals with homeowner insurance, automobile insurance, rental car insurance issues, and others facing insurance coverage issues.
When a business is faced with an insurance coverage dispute or an attorney is faced with a coverage question that extends beyond their area of experience, an effective option is to call on outside coverage counsel with extensive experience to handle difficult or high limit cases on an as-needed basis.
David assists risk managers and corporate counsel by providing experience with insurance law questions while providing the benefit of counsel on-call only when needed. This offers the avenue to obtain an answer quickly and efficiently while reducing legal expenses.
Companies and attorneys have access to an insurance law attorney for discrete issues without the need to maintain a full time insurance coverage attorney within their organization.
Insurance Coverage Disputes can include:
