We have successfully defended a number of large and small financial institutions against insurable interest and misrepresentation claims brought by life insurers in numerous jurisdictions, and in the process, have established some of the most important pro-investor precedent in the life settlement area.
We represented pre-petition secured lenders and debtor-in-possession lenders in the largest insolvency proceeding relating to a life settlements portfolio.
We obtained an arbitration award of more than $86 million on behalf of an investor-subsidiary of a major European bank against an AIG affiliate, based on the insurer’s breach of a complex credit insurance agreement that provided the investor with a hedge against the risk that individual life insurance policies in a life settlement portfolio would decline in value.
We developed and implemented an innovative national strategy for a large financial institution to assist with its life settlement public policy advocacy.
We have conducted numerous life settlement portfolio assessments to determine litigation, regulatory and legislative risk.
