The Sherman & Howard Difference

Our Insurance Recovery team is familiar with the kinds of insurance products that are available to our clients, and frequently provides advice on the coverage that is available under existing policies and an additional insurance that should be procured. It handles a wide variety of insurance coverage disputes for policyholders in virtually every industry across the country. Composed of attorneys with transactional, regulatory, and litigation experience, the team maximizes clients’ recovery in high-stakes coverage disputes. We represent corporate and individual policyholders in federal and state courts and before arbitration panels. We have also been involved in establishing groundbreaking case law and legislation benefitting corporate policyholders in Colorado.

Our highly experienced and talented team of lawyers includes the past national chair of the ABA’s Tort Trial & Insurance Practice Section Insurance Coverage Litigation Committee, a fellow in the prestigious American College of Coverage Counsel, an insurance industry “Rising Star,” and several lawyers recognized in Best Lawyers in America and as Colorado Super Lawyers (including one regularly selected as a Top 100 Colorado lawyer across all fields of practice). Through decades of practice, we have earned a reputation as problem solvers, tenacious advocates, formidable opponents, and creative legal strategists committed to our clients’ success.

Our Approach

With a broad and deep understanding of insurance law and the pathways that lead to coverage for disputed claims, we help policyholder clients at every stage, from insurance procurement and policy renewal through claims assessment and review, and dispute resolution. We guide clients through both negotiated settlements and high-stakes litigation. We regularly assist clients in negotiating insurance and indemnity provisions in contracts, performing insurance due diligence, developing complex insurance programs for single projects or enterprise-wide operations, and otherwise assisting clients in managing risk to best protect their bottom lines.
