Insurance Agents and Brokers E&O

Lewis Brisbois has a longstanding history of successfully defending insurance agents and brokers both by way of direct engagement and retention through the professionals' insurance carriers. With over 40 years of experience partnering with the insurance industry as well as a deep understanding of how insurance is marketed and sold, we are uniquely positioned to represent the interests of our insurance agent and broker clients. 

The professional liability attorneys throughout Lewis Brisbois' nationwide network, many of whom regularly write and lecture on the topic of insurance agent and broker errors and omissions, consistently achieve outstanding results in defending agents and brokers against a variety of claims. Often disposing of cases at the pleading stage or on summary disposition, we also have a strong track record of winning jury trials and appeals, as well as representing insurance agents and brokers before regulatory, state licensing, and disciplinary boards.
Our insurance agent and broker client base is diverse and includes individual agents and brokers as well as large managing general agents and brokers involved in the procurement of specialty and surplus lines of insurance coverage throughout the world. We regularly defend insurance agents and brokers in the following types of matters:

  • Alleged failure to obtain the requested insurance
  • Alleged misrepresentation of policy terms or the nature, scope, or extent of coverage
  • Alleged failure to disclose material information on insurance applications
  • Vanishing premium cases
  • Cases involving premium financing
  • Cases involving the funding of welfare benefits plans
