Rescission Actions | Bad Faith & Unfair Claims Practices | Duty to Defend | Scope of Coverage Claims
As experienced and strong advocates for our clients, Duffy & Sweeney attorneys litigate insurance issues and coverage questions in both court actions and arbitrations involving an array of insurance products such as life, property and casualty, marine, and D&O policies.
Frequently, carriers are represented by large, national law firms that aggressively defend their denial of coverage. Duffy & Sweeney insurance litigation lawyers have successfully overcome their efforts, reversing carrier denials and effectively establishing coverage. We have secured statutory penalties in cases involving unfair claims practices.
With specific regard to business interruption insurance disputes in light of COVID-19 shutdowns, the team continues to be at the forefront of these issues. In fact, Stacey Nakasian was featured in a Rhode Island Lawyers Weekly article on “Force Majeure” in 2020 and provided in-depth commentary for Rhode Island Lawyers Weekly regarding a 2021 Superior Court ruling in what may be Rhode Island’s first ruling in a business interruption insurance coverage.
Our office is based on South Main Street in Providence, Rhode Island in the rapidly developing waterfront / I-195 region, connecting the East Side to Downtown and the Knowledge District. Contact us at 401.455.0700.
