Surety & Fidelity Law
Our attorneys have successfully represented clients in complex performance and payment bond cases ranging from major contractor defaults to bond fraud to bad faith allegations. Such experience includes negotiating takeover and tender agreements, and performance bond buybacks, as well as the assertion and litigation of affirmative claims against owners, design professionals, or subcontractors.
Our proficiency extends beyond contract surety to bonds of all types: fidelity, probate and many other commercial lines, including notary bonds, mortgage broker bonds, motor vehicle dealer bonds, bankruptcy trustee bonds, and license bonds, among others. Our work with fidelity bonds includes employee dishonesty bonds, commercial crime policies, and other similar products.
Our Experience Can Make the Difference
We bring substantial experience in matters involving loss recovery, including indemnification and subrogation. This includes asserting various indemnity agreement rights such as the right to review books and records, and the entitlement to collateral security.
We have also successfully represented sureties in various subrogation matters, including disputes with lenders, the IRS, bankruptcy trustees, and other creditors.
Our attorneys have served as authors and editors of books, periodicals, articles, and newsletters in the surety and fidelity fields. They are regularly asked to speak at ABA/Surety and Fidelity Law Committee functions and other national surety industry conferences and seminars, and have held leadership positions in industry groups.
