Dolden Wallace Folick LLP was created specifically to provide legal services to the insurance industry.
Our firm's expertise and experience make us leaders among insurance law firms.
Insurers appoint us to respond to claims under a wide variety of property policies including commercial, habitational, and Course of Construction/builder risk policies.
We also defend insureds under a wide variety of liability policies including:
- commercial general liability policies;
- professional liability policies;
- personal lines liability policies;
- directors and officers, employment practice, and fiduciary liability policies;
- environmental liability policies;
- cyber liability policies; and
- media liability policies.
We defend complex proceedings involving catastrophic personal injury and property losses, commercial host and liquor liability, sexual abuse, construction damage and delay, securities claims, and class actions.
We also provide insurers with coverage analysis and, where necessary, act for insurers in coverage proceedings. Excess and umbrella insurers retain us to work alongside counsel appointed by primary insurers and ensure that claims are resolved efficiently and cost-effectively.
We help insurers prepare innovative products by reviewing or drafting new policy language and customizing existing policies to meet particular insurance needs. We ensure that our clients' products evolve to meet regulatory requirements, legal developments, and underwriting risks.
We pursue subrogated claims arising from defective products, fire losses, subsidence and construction damage, and for economic or business interruption losses.
With offices in Vancouver, Toronto and Kelowna our firm offers a "national platform" serving clients throughout Canada, except in Quebec. Our lawyers regularly appear in all levels of Court and participate in mediation, arbitration, and statutory appraisal procedures.
