Los Angeles Insurance Coverage and Risk Management Lawyers

Representing Insured Clients Throughout California and Nationwide

At the California law firm of Goodkin & Lynch, LLP, we represent numerous commercial and residential real estate developers in insurance coverage and risk management matters. Our loyal client base is built upon referrals from former clients and other law firms who appreciate our in-depth knowledge in this esoteric area of law.

However, our insurance coverage and risk management practice is not limited to the real estate industry, or to California. We also provide legal counsel and representation to clients in a broad spectrum of other industries. Currently, attorney R. Jane Lynch is coverage counsel to large companies dealing with coverage issues over a broad spectrum of topics.

Utilizing Inside Knowledge of the Insurance Industry

During the early years of her practice, Ms. Lynch worked on behalf of insurers. Her experience gives her unique insight into the insurance carrier's perspective, allowing her to more effectively advise insured parties on contractual insurance requirements, coverage issues and develop effective claims strategies on their behalf.

Negotiating Policy Terms

Many of our clients are actively engaged in new real estate projects, and Ms. Lynch has extensive experience negotiating the terms of the insurance policies that come into play. Builders often require owner-controlled insurance program (OCIP) policies that protect all the contractors and subcontractors in their employ.

However, there are only a certain number of markets for OCIPs, and the policies are often significantly slanted in the insurance company's favor. When dealing with offshore, nonadmitted, surplus lines insurers, retaining a lawyer skilled in policy negotiation is critical and provides significant added value.

You may arrange a consultation with Ms. Lynch by calling Goodkin & Lynch, LLP, at 310-853-5730, or send us an email.
