Insurance& Reinsurance

Barclay Damon's knowledge of the laws and regulations that affect the insurance industry and self-insured clients is equaled by our understanding of their operations and business interests.


Barclay Damon’s multidisciplinary insurance and reinsurance team represents insurance companies across the country as well as the interests of clients outside the insurance industry who opt to self-insure or include a self-insurance retention provision in a policy.

We have deep experience with all types of insurance lines. In addition to insurance and reinsurance, we are experienced with captives, syndicates, runoffs, and special-purpose vehicles. We are also experienced in all of the major industry segments, including property, casualty, professional liability, directors and officers, personal and commercial auto, life, health, construction, energy, cyber, employment liability, workers’ compensation, disability, and long-term care coverage as well as facultative and treaty reinsurance. We handle the full range of insurance litigation, business transactions, regulatory issues, and other matters, from the most complex to routine.

Our understanding of the laws and regulations that affect the insurance industry is equaled by our understanding of its operations and interests. Our team’s aim is always to help clients strategically operate and grow their businesses through innovation and well-informed decision making and by proactively predicting and preventing problems from arising.

Self-Insured Retention

Barclay Damon has extensive experience protecting the interests of self-insured clients, providing counsel and representation in disputes involving self-insured retention, large proportion deductibles, claims of bad faith, and claims of insurance-contract breaches. We also defend clients against claims of personal injury, wrongful death, property damages, and business losses. These claims often involve issues of contractual liability, tort liability, and statutory liability, such as dram shop laws, copyright laws, state and federal discrimination statutes, environmental laws, transportation laws, and more. We are proud to advise self-insured private- and public-sector entities on the full range of their legal and business needs.
