Strategic Risk & Complex Litigation

When insured clients are in need of experienced and aggressive trial counsel to handle their high exposure litigation, catastrophic losses, and “bet the company” cases, they turn to the attorneys in Cozen O'Connor’s Strategic Risk & Complex Litigation practice area, a subset of the firm’s Global Insurance Department.

Cozen O’Connor’s strategic risk and complex litigation attorneys handle all manner of litigation on behalf of sophisticated corporate entities, including class actions, mass torts, and consolidated federal multidistrict litigation. We have experience in state and federal courts at the trial and appellate levels around the country, and our attorneys are routinely selected to serve as lead trial counsel and/or national coordinating counsel.

We have tried cases in virtually every state in the United States, as well as in the United Kingdom and Canada. When appropriate, we make use of alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation and arbitration. Our success rate employing such methods is bolstered by our adversaries’ knowledge that we will settle only to serve our clients’ best interests, not to avoid trial.

Although our clients demand the highest-quality legal services, cost containment and budget predictability are also important concerns for well-managed companies. Particularly in high exposure, “bet the company” litigation, where the full scope of a problem may not be immediately clear, Cozen O’Connor’s strategic risk and complex litigation attorneys work closely with clients to develop litigation strategies that limit exposure and prevent escalation. We communicate regularly with clients about strategy and ongoing claims management, and carefully adhere to clients’ internal litigation management requirements.
