Practice Areas

Insurance Law

Hassard Bonnington’s insurance practice primarily focuses on three areas:

The firm has been particularly active in the health field, acquiring special expertise in developing areas of law, particularly with respect to the application of ERISA, liability for failure to provide benefits for experimental treatment, carrier liability for acts of contracting providers, and allegations of fiduciary responsibility.

The firm’s historical experience in interpreting and applying laws regulating health care leads to requests for opinions or consultations in this field. Those requests have increased as managed care arrangements are constructed or implemented. Experience in both insurance and Knox-Keene regulation also supports this practice.

Our insurance practice includes the defense of claims arising in various industries, reflecting experience gained in the representation of diverse business clients, as well as insurers.
