In a firm where there is concentrated effort in protecting the rights of insurance carriers and their insureds, it is only natural to have a dynamic subrogation department. Niles Barton’s vast and diverse experience in insurance related matters often provides valuable insight to the evaluation of subrogation claims. The training of our attorneys in first- and third-party defense litigation provides us with the ability to avoid the common pitfalls and mistakes of plaintiff's counsel, to formulate effective tactics and strategies for the courtroom, and to maximize recovery on behalf of the insurance carrier. Our goal is very simple: provide determined, innovative and efficient representation to obtain the most favorable recovery for our clients.
Our experience includes litigation of complex losses throughout the mid-Atlantic region, including Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and the District of Columbia. As a member of the Law Firm Alliance, we can extend our reach of sophisticated subrogation services for clients beyond the mid-Atlantic region to all 50 states.
Our timely and thorough approach to investigation often leads to successful recovery without the necessity of filing suit. In multiple party losses, we routinely negotiate cooperation agreements, allowing clients to focus their efforts on the successful prosecution of claims. When possible, we help clients seek solutions outside the courtroom, through alternative dispute resolution, including arbitration and mediation.
