Insurance Benefits Litigation

Our Insurance Benefits Litigation Practice Group represents insurers and self-funded benefit plans in federal court actions involving life, health, disability, long term care, annuity, and ERISA matters.

We’re thorough and collaborative.

Led by Firm co-founder, Bryan Bolton, our Insurance Benefits Litigation team manages every step in the litigation process with a focus on collaboration, efficiency, and obtaining the best possible results for our client. We represent insurers in regulatory and administrative proceedings before the Maryland Insurance Administration and the Office of Administrative Hearings. We litigate individual disability claims in state court and in the administrative arena. We also handle FINRA and AAA arbitration matters. We achieve optimal solutions with extensive experience and exceptional attention to detail.

We’re relentless advocates.

We tackle problems with energy and persistence, and we take time to understand the ins and outs of each issue and every context. Our clients trust us to have tough conversations and to offer unconventional solutions because we are skilled, creative thinkers with a reputation for success.

We solve forward.

We are constantly engaged in both trial and appellate proceedings, and we’re actively shaping Maryland insurance law. A few of our game-changing decisions can be found in the following published opinions:

  • People’s Ins. Counsel Div. v. Allstate Ins. Co., 424 Md. 443 (Md. 2012)
  • Goldstein v. Lincoln Nat’l Life Ins. Co., 2012 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 41720 (D. Md. Mar. 27, 2012)
