Briggs and Morgan’s intellectual property attorneys are experts in evaluating their clients insurance coverage to assess the availability of coverage for certain types of intellectual property claims. In addition to specialty lines expressly covering intellectual property type claims, standard Commercial General Liability (CGL) insurance policies can also provide coverage for certain intellectual property claims pursuant to the "personal and advertising injury" coverage.

Briggs and Morgan prides itself on its ability to help our clients navigate through the insurance process, including tendering claims to applicable insurers and aggressively pursuing coverage, including commencing insurance coverage litigation if necessary.
