Bad Faith and Coverage

Tharpe & Howell, LLP’s Bad Faith and Coverage team offers seasoned expertise and representation in the areas of insurance coverage questions, insurance litigation, and defense of bad faith cases.  Our attorneys are experienced in handling all three phases, so when it comes to defending a bad faith action you have attorneys that have an accurate understanding of the insurance coverage issues instead of just being litigators.

We understand that your prosperity depends on acting quickly, effectively and efficiently.  We have built our highly regarded reputation by delivering prompt and thorough analysis of coverage questions.  Our attorneys combine extensive experience interpreting insuring documents with an intimate understanding of relevant case law to provide dependable coverage recommendations and strategies.  We are recognized experts in the analysis of Directors & Officers Insurance coverage, a rare specialty.  To contain your costs, we offer attractive hourly rates and capped fee programs for coverage analysis.

When litigation ensues, our goal is to quickly narrow each action through aggressive investigation and pleading attacks through summary judgment/adjudication.  This strategy has paid off with an overwhelmingly high percentage of favorable case resolutions.
