Insurance Coverage

Our client was a specialized inspector for a major building project. A higher level of inspection claimed that there had been deficiencies in our client’s work, which delayed the entire construction project. Our client’s CGL insurer denied coverage based on the “professional services” exclusion. We sued the insurer to obtain coverage. When the insurer filed a Motion to Dismiss based on the exclusion in the policy, we not only defeated their motion, but we also obtained favorable language from the Federal judge in the ruling. The settlement of the matter was sufficient to discharge our client’s alleged liability to the building owner.
