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 .

 

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:

 

  • Insurance coverage disputes under commercial general liability policies, homeowner insurance, car insurance, property insurance, and rental car insurance.
  • Attorney professional liability coverage issues including late notice, known claims, denial of coverage and other claims made policy coverage issues.
  • Coverage issues arising from pollution exclusions, toxic tort, mold, flood, construction defects and similar general liability issues.
  • Questions such as the recovery limits in automobile insurance policies, Uninsured or Underinsured (UM, UIM) Limits and allocation or coordination of insurance coverage.
  • Claims for medical benefits under ERISA benefit plans, health care coverage and employer sponsored plans. 
  • Assisting Attorneys and Corporate Counsel
  • Business representation includes assisting plaintiff counsel who want to temporarily work with an attorney experience with difficult and high limit insurance disputes, declaratory actions or litigating policy limits.
  • Serving as outside counsel for business risk managers, providing insurance coverage opinions to corporate counsel and litigating for or in conjunction with in-house counsel.
  • Serving businesses, risk managers and in-house counsel with coverage disputes including duty to defend, advertising injury, property damage, personal injury, toxic tort coverage, mold litigation, rail transfer facilities, manufactured gas plants, pollution bodily injury and property damage claims and construction defect claims.

reliable
I am still currently working with Mr Roe on a case and he helped me with a prior case I find him to be very honest, easy to talk with and to and always available to talk with. I would recommend him for anyone needing services that he specializes in.

Competent and honest
Business, contract, legal consultation. I was represented by David Roe in a legal litigation and I must say, hands down. Couldn't expect more.

Professional and Down to Earth
David was faced with a very difficult, complicated case, and always told me the straight story. He could have given me dilusions of grandure; however, he told me what to expect, interceded at and slightly before the appropriate times. He has been working on my case with regularity over the last five years, and works wonders for me.
