National Insurance Coverage Counsel

Goldberg Segalla’s Global Insurance Services practice—home to one of the largest collection of senior insurance coverage attorneys in the nation—serves multiple leading insurers on national and regional coronavirus coverage panels. Our dedicated Coronavirus Coverage Team includes many senior coverage partners across our national footprint, allowing us to coordinate and ensure consistency in our approach to coronavirus claims, while avoiding taking any position in one claim or in one jurisdiction that could disadvantage a client in another.

Our experience serving insurers as national coverage counsel for claims related to Superstorm Sandy, the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks, Hurricane Matthew, and other catastrophic events—as well as for claims related to the opioid epidemic, environmental mass torts, Child Victims Acts, and more—has equipped us to navigate and guide our clients through the unprecedented claims landscape created by the coronavirus pandemic.


Coverage attorneys from across our national footprint continue to cover the coronavirus pandemic and its second- and third-order effects on businesses and insurers. We keep our clients constantly updated through timely email alerts, webinars, and educational resources to aid in decision-making—including detailed fact sheets on anticipated coverage issues, exclusions, and claims-handling guidance under a range of insurance policy lines. Because of our reputation as leaders in this developing space, insurance and business media turn to our firm first for explanation of the latest developments, and you will find our attorneys frequently quoted under breaking headlines related to coronavirus claims, coverage, and regulatory news.

Our resources kit, available through our website and upon request, includes coverage and claims-handling fact sheets on the following policy lines:

  • Business Interruption
  • Event Cancellation
  • Commercial General Liability (CGL)
  • Directors and Officers (D&O)
  • Errors and Omissions (E&O)
  • Workers’ Compensation and Employer’s Liability

In addition, we have prepared and continuously update an Insurance Regulatory State-by-State Guide.

Our timely email alerts to clients have covered topics including:
