Litigation Practice - Insurance Litigation

“High-profile, high-powered Atlanta law firm.” – Atlanta Journal Constitution

At Bondurant, Mixson & Elmore, we specialize in representing policyholders in disputes with their insurance carriers. When a coverage dispute arises, we protect our clients’ right to use the coverage they paid for, negotiate settlements where possible, and litigate or arbitrate when necessary. 

We help policyholders recover insurance in Georgia and across the United States for claims under any type of policy, including  commercial general liability, umbrella and excess, directors and officers liability, professional liability and any number of specialty policies. In recent years, we have successfully represented clients seeking to enforce policies that insure the representation and warranties in major business transactions. 

We have significant experience in evaluating and prosecuting tort claims against insurance companies that wrongfully deny coverage or fail to settle claims against their insureds. That includes every step of the process — from evaluating the potential for such claims before the underlying litigation is complete through the litigation of claims directly against insurance companies.

We also specialize in reviewing the insurance programs of our clients to maximize their coverage.  Both before and during litigation, we advise our clients as to how best to position themselves for future coverage disputes or to avoid litigation altogether.

As a firm singularly dedicated to litigation, Bondurant is uniquely positioned to navigate the intricacies of insurance disputes. Our team possesses deep knowledge of insurance policies and contractual law, which lets us advocate for our clients and secure favorable outcomes.
