Extra-Contractual / Bad Faith

The unique circumstances posed by extra-contractual claims, potentially exposing an insurer to significant risks jeopardizing both its integrity and business operations, requires coverage counsel with particularly extensive experience and a precise understanding of claims alleging bad faith and unfair practices. Stewart Smith attorneys have successfully defended the integrity of insurers against extra-contractual claims in both State and Federal courts across the United States. We have never permitted a bad faith or extra-contractual verdict to be taken against our clients.
