Title Insurance Controversies

Our firm is also retained to handle title insurance arbitration and litigation relating to matters involving title defects, title insurance coverage, competing lien priorities, the fraudulent procurement of title, boundary disputes, and disputes involving title insurance agents, such as the collection of title insurance premiums and agent defalcations.

Representative Matters

Obtained a summary judgment in favor of a title insurance company in a million dollar plus coverage dispute with a title insurance agent's errors and omissions carrier.  The carrier sought to avoid liability based on exclusions contained in the errors and omissions policy, but we established that the carrier had waived defenses to coverage by failing to defend the underlying litigation and, therefore, was liable to the title insurance company.

Represented a large insurance company against a wholesale broker that claimed in excess of $5 million in damages resulting from the company's allegedly wrongful termination of the broker agreement, issuance of nonrenewal notices to the broker's insureds and failure to pay commissions and profit sharing.  While our motion to compel and for sanctions was pending, a settlement was reached.
