Insurance Defense Attorneys

We understand the pressures the insurance industry faces and the hurdles that lay ahead. At Burglass & Tankersley, we are advocates and counselors protecting our clients' interests and advancing their goals.

We represent established, admitted carriers and major companies in the surplus line industry that are insurers and self-insured corporations. Insurance defense attorneys must be talented in litigation, mediation, negotiation, arbitration and case preparation. The aggressiveness of plaintiffs' attorneys is unyielding in many respects.

Our firm is a cut above the rest because of our modernized approach to insurance defense litigation. Our state-of-the-art computer systems, mobile connectivity, nurse paralegals and access to a broad spectrum of experts combined with our aptitude for legal research places our capabilities on the cutting edge. We are proactive and dedicated to our practice, and we share our clients' goals.

Our experience extends beyond our focus on issues in Louisiana and Mississippi, handling litigation in the following areas:

  • Comprehensive general liability
  • Officers and directors liability
  • Municipal liability
  • Transportation
  • Environmental claims and coverage
  • Homeowners policies
  • Products liability
  • Premises liability
  • Professional liability
  • Contractor liability
  • Medical liability
  • Maritime liability

Our attorneys are extensively experienced trial and appellate attorneys at both the state and federal level. Many of our attorneys practice insurance law exclusively, and our track record has earned recognition from regulatory authorities and insurance providers.

Forming close partnerships with our clients, our communication, evaluations, and cost and risk management services allow for precise and timely decision-making throughout the process of litigation.
