Insurance Defense

Peter Klose formerly worked at one of the largest insurance defense litigation firms in the country. As a part of his practice, he continues to accept limited insurance defense cases involving significant personal injury in upstate courts, where he has practiced for more than fifteen years. Having honed his skills in litigation firms handling various types of insurance defense and insurance defense litigation, Peter understands that insurance companies need close personal relationships with their litigation attorneys. Obviously, the first priority for any defense related case is to provide relevant and competent advice to the insured, whether the matter involves a car accident, slip and fall, construction accident, or other general negligence claim. Thereafter, timely reports, including narrowly focused considerations of the risks and benefits by our attorneys give our insurance company clients the confidence that they know the local courthouse and the variables associated with Dutchess, Westchester, Rockland, and Ulster County.

Drawing from his past experience and ability to find the answer, Peter can help you or your insured resolve claims and coverage concerns, including bad faith general negligence; products liability, property or casualty insurance; and he has handled tort litigation of all types, including comprehensive general liability, automobile, homeowners, professional errors and omissions, municipal liability, directors and officers liability, transportation, product liability, toxic tort, environmental claims and coverage, securities litigation, repetitive stress injury, life, fire, health and accident, and extended coverage.

As is evident from this web site, Peter is engaged in the various stages of trial and appellate practice at the Federal and State level. We are proud of our reputation in the area of insurance law for providing personal, hands on representation. Where possible, we endeavor to spare the expense of unnecessary litigation through the successful use of arbitration, mediation and settlement discussions. We use our experience, staff, and resources to defend our clients against unfounded claims.
