Reinsurance is an arcane and sophisticated practice area in which the skill and experience of the attorney can increase the likelihood of a desirable outcome. Loree & Loree offers skilled, hands-on, representation in reinsurance and reinsurance-related matters, albeit on what we believe is a more cost-effective basis than large firms typically offer.
B-2-B Litigation & Arbitration
Loree & Loree offers representation to small- and medium-sized businesses and business people in court and arbitration proceedings involving contract and business tort disputes. We can represent clients in New York State or federal court proceedings, before arbitration panels, and in mediations. We also can counsel you on how to resolve a dispute that is not yet the subject of formal proceedings, and assist you with settlement negotiations. And we can help you avoid future disputes by assisting you with drafting and negotiating contract wording designed to protect your legitimate business expectations.
Arbitration Law, Practice & Procedure
Arbitration is supposed to provide a speedy and cost- effective alternative to litigation, but that does not always turn out to be the case. There are various reasons for this, but one is that arbitration-law – the body of federal and state law designed to enforce arbitration agreements and awards, and otherwise regulate arbitration – can be nuanced and complex and is often unsettled. It may also raise complex contract law, and vertical (state versus federal or domestic federal versus federal treaty) and horizontal (state versus state, state versus foreign or federal versus foreign) choice-of -law considerations. It has an unfortunate tendency to breed arbitration-related litigation that must be dealt with along with the arbitration proceeding, sometimes at the same time.
Insurance Coverage & Other Insurance-Related Matters
As a natural outgrowth of our reinsurance practice, Loree & Loree also offers representation to insurance industry clients involved in insurance coverage and other contentious or non-contentious insurance-related matters. While knowledge of insurance law alone is insufficient background to understand reinsurance law and practice, to understand reinsurance one must also understand insurance coverage principles and a number of other areas of insurance law and practice. In addition to handling reinsurance matters, Mr. Loree Jr. is experienced in handling insurance coverage and insurance-related matters, particularly in the property and casualty and life insurance areas and including matters involving agents, brokers and third party administrators.
