Insurance Coverage / Bad Faith Litigation
We provide a full range of legal services to both insurers and insured in disputes regarding insurance coverage, the duty to defend, and the duty to indemnify. Our services range from providing opinions as to applicable insurance coverage, bringing declaratory judgment actions in state or federal court, and both prosecuting and defending lawsuits alleging breach of the duty to defend.
Our attorneys have extensive knowledge and experience in resolving issues regarding primary and excess coverage, subrogation rights, and monitoring insurer-funded defenses provided under a reservation of rights. These cases can be very complex, and you can rely on the sophisticated knowledge of our insurance attorneys to promote and protect your interests, whether you are an insurer or insured.
We have been involved in significant cases addressing extra-contractual damages on behalf of both insurers and policy-holders. We have been instrumental in both prosecuting and invalidating the kind of covenant judgments and assignments of rights that are commonly attempted under the principles of Washington bad faith law. We stay on top of the constantly developing field of insurance law, which permits us to advise clients most effectively. Whether your insurance needs arise in a pre-litigation context or after the initiation of litigation, Mullin, Allen & Steiner is available to serve your needs effectively and efficiently.
