Property Insurance

Chartwell attorneys have significant experience with coverage analysis and defense of disputed claims pertaining to turbines (gas, steam, wind and water), natural gas pipelines and storage facilities, transformers, and petroleum refinery losses, from initial investigation through litigation/arbitration our experience extends to international losses, with many of our attorneys working with clients on claims arising at various locations in North/South/Central America, Europe, Asia, and Africa.

In addition to energy sector losses, we have successfully handled insurance and reinsurance disputes, both domestically and internationally, concerning property damage and time element claims arising at hotels, casinos, high-rises, shopping malls, supermarkets, warehouses, airports, tunnels, bridges, chemical processing facilities, fertilizer plants, silos, parking structures, and multi-unit residential premises. The loss scenarios are varied, and include fires, explosions, structural collapses, crane and heavy equipment/machinery failures, molten metal break-outs at steel foundries, design and construction defects, natural catastrophe claims (arising out of floods, windstorms, hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes, tsunamis), damage to or loss of inventory/cargo (in storage or in transit) bad faith and claims of fraud and/or arson.
