Insurance

Wheeler Trigg O'Donnell lawyers have extensive trial and appellate experience representing national commercial insurers and their insureds in high-stakes and high-profile disputes in federal and state courts and state supreme courts.

Our insurance practice focuses on high-exposure litigation, including class actions, wrongful death and catastrophic injury cases, and matters of first impression for America's largest insurance carriers. For example, in 2016, Law360 named Travelers v. Stresscon, which WTO won for Travelers in the Colorado Supreme Court, one of the top five insurance cases of the year

Class Actions
WTO is home to one of the premier class action defense practices in the nation. Six WTO attorneys have tried seven certified class action trials to juries, obtaining defense verdicts and favorable mid-trial settlements. Our teams have defeated certification and obtained dismissals of class action matters more than 175 times, and we have litigated class actions in 33 states. Insurers such as Allstate, AXIS, Farmers, and USAA have turned to WTO for the defense of class action litigation and trials.
