Fidelity

Overview

Banner Fidelity

Among the insurance-related issues our team aggressively and strategically manages are fidelity claims, including those relating to employee dishonesty, fraudulent computer and funds transfers, social engineering fraud, and forgery.

Hermes, Netburn, O’Connor & Spearing attorneys have decades of experience investigating claims, assessing coverage issues and defending client’s interests in litigation and arbitration. We routinely represent a variety of commercial insurers invested in the outcome of disputes involving:

  • Fidelity Insurance Policies,
  • Directors and Officer’s Liability Policies,
  • Professional Indemnity Policies
  • Errors and Omissions Policies
  • General Liability Policies
  • Property and Casualty Policies

We understand that issues of employee dishonesty, especially when they result in complex financial and computer fraud, do not always result in clear-cut losses. Accordingly, our attorneys are well versed in aggressively investigating these matters to understand the full scope of loss. Utilizing the talents of our team as well as the outside assistance of private investigators, computer experts and forensic accountants, we work extensively to parse out the true financial implications of a claim of employee dishonesty, protecting insurers from over-paying on claims and preserving recovery. After the scope of loss has been fully examined and thoroughly investigated, our attorneys provide clients with compressive coverage analysis and legal defense. While we strive to negotiate and settle cases for our clients in order to avoid costly litigation, our lawyers have extensive experience ligating and arbitrating matters in regional, national and international courts using a detailed, deliberate and business-oriented approach. Our fidelity team is also committed to helping insurers learn and protect themselves from future fidelity claims. We routinely work with clients to draft and improve terms and conditions of coverage in order to build strong risk management structures and avoid future legal disputes.
