InsuranceThe attorneys at Lockhart Park, LLP have decades of experience working with major insurance carriers, third party administrators and their insured companies in defending businesses and individuals in complex liability claims related to construction projects.  In addition, we have a strong track record in defending multi-million dollar class action lawsuits involving construction defect and product liability claims.  Our attorneys also have extensive experience in the defense of claims relating to motor vehicles, premises liability, and personal injury.

The attorneys at Lockhart Park have represented insurers both in private practice and as in-house counsel for major carriers. We draw upon that breadth of experience to obtain dismissals, successfully prosecute summary adjudication motions and declaratory relief actions or achieve favorable results through mediation, arbitration, and other forms of alternative dispute resolution.  We have consistently received accolades from clients in recognition of our case handling in critical areas such as reporting frequency and quality, creative solutions, favorability of settlements, success with dispositive law and motion work, and cost effectiveness. 

We are seasoned and aggressive litigators who have provided expert guidance to clients over the full spectrum of construction matters from multi-million dollar residential and mixed use developments to commercial buildings, custom projects and single family homes.  Our attorneys have represented component manufacturers, subcontractors and material suppliers of all sizes - from Fortune 500 companies to small local businesses related to a wide range of building trades.

We continue to strive to find better ways to serve the needs of our clients.  We believe that the combination of our specialization, deep relationships with the courts, special masters, developers’ counsel and experts within the geographic markets we serve, allows us to provide optimal results to our construction industry clients and the insurance carriers who serve them.
