The attorneys at Matovich, Keller & Huso have decades of experience representing national and regional insurance carriers across a broad spectrum of insurance lines. We analyze demands for coverage, assist with policy interpretation and application, provide coverage opinions, assist with drafting and reviewing correspondence to insureds and counsel, and initiate and defend declaratory judgment actions seeking coverage determinations.
Our insurance coverage practice includes questions of first-party coverage as well as an analysis of whether an insurance carrier’s duty to defend and/or indemnify is triggered under the terms of a policy in relation to a third-party claim. Our attorneys have litigated numerous coverage disputes in Montana state and federal courts and have achieved successful outcomes for our clients in declaratory judgment actions.
We also provide guidance to insurers regarding claims handling practices, compliance with Montana law, and potential exposure to extra-contractual liability. Our attorneys are experienced in litigating common law bad faith and UTPA actions brought by insureds and putative insureds, in both the first-party and third-party contexts. In the absence of a pretrial resolution, we will vigorously defend our clients at trial.
