We construct audit protocols and perform audits for reinsurers, ceding companies and potential purchasers with particular experience in:
- Professional liability: attorneys, accountants, medical, architects, engineers, etc.

- Other property/casualty risks
- Life, accident and disability
- Workers’ compensation
- Health care and medical malpractice liability programs
On behalf of reinsurance and transactional clients, we audit D&O, professional liability, and health care and medical malpractice accounts throughout the United States. Using our reinsurance claims experience as both inside and outside reinsurance counsel, we advise clients on broad and specific issues of claim handling and presentation including XPL and ECO losses, contract construction and interpretation, reserving, risk management, dispute avoidance and the use of ADR to minimize transaction costs.
Clients benefit from our cross-practice approach to auditing and counseling that draws upon the experience and resources of our reinsurance group together with the specific skills and experience of other practice groups within the firm. As an example, we audit and provide counseling to reinsurers on significant health care liability treaty programs involving admitted insurance companies, risk retention groups and other cedants. Our healthcare group provides subject matter expertise, including considerable trial experience involving physician and hospital liability, physician practice groups, nursing homes, allied health and many other aspects of healthcare and medical malpractice liability programs.
