Our attorneys have extensive experience investigating all types of major losses, including fires, turbine losses, structural collapses, refinery losses, equipment and product failures, explosions, chemical spills, rack collapses, mold claims and water damages. Regardless of the size, we leave no stone unturned when investigating a loss. From Brazil to Canada, our experience and relentless investigative techniques have saved our clients money.

  • Ready For Trial

    Ready For Trial

    Our attorneys have represented insurers in some of the most notable losses in the country. For example, Rogge Dunn tried the New Orleans Fair Grounds racetrack fire. After a four week trial, he won a $58 million jury verdict in favor of his clients.

    Some subrogation firms may be hesitant to try cases. We have found that the best way to maximize settlement offers is to have a reputation for being willing to go to trial.

  • Lower Expenses

    Lower Expenses

    The purpose of subrogation is to recover money–not spend it. The big subro firms have far-flung offices and hundreds of lawyers to support. Our efficient operations and sensible overhead allow us to pass these savings on to our clients. Our attorneys plan ahead to reduce the use of overnight mailings and couriers, which are significant expenses in multi-million dollar cases.
