Successfully handled insurance claim for an individual whose Tibetan coin dies and gold bullion coins were stolen. We revealed that the law in Washington, D.C. (i) recognizes insurance company mistake as a ground for recognizing coverage, and (ii) frowns upon insurance company reliance upon exclusions that are not revealed until after an event underlying coverage has taken place. Nonetheless, the insurance company continued to insist upon a denial of coverage for the stolen coins and a court date was set. After pre-court hearing negotiations the insurance company agreed to pay our client the total of what he sought.

While we are pleased to have you contact us by telephone, surface mail, electronic mail, or by facsimile transmission, contacting Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP or any of its attorneys does not create an attorney-client relationship. The formation of an attorney-client relationship requires consideration of multiple factors, including possible conflicts of interest. An attorney-client relationship is formed only when both you and the Firm have agreed to proceed with a defined engagement.
