Casualty & Professional Liability Defense Practice Group

Zarwin Baum’s Casualty and Professional Liability Defense Practice Group has been a cornerstone practice area for the firm for over twenty-five years. The practice continues to grow and prosper based on the Firm’s commitment to provide the highest quality legal service while still maintaining economic efficiency. Zarwin Baum has pursued this commitment by employing talented, skilled and practical attorneys who understand the unique and challenging needs of our casualty and defense clients.

The Firm has been become the “go-to” firm in Pennsylvania and New Jersey for numerous insurance carriers,replica watches third-party administrators, program managers, syndicates, managing general agents and self-insured clients. Martindale-Hubbell rates the firm as an “AV rated, Preeminent Law Firm” and the firm is listed by Best’s Directories of Recommended Insurance Attorneys. Further, many of the firm’s attorneys have been annually honored as “Super Lawyers” in the insurance defense practice area.

In this highly competitive insurance market, the casualty world is focused more than ever on controlling legal spend. Maintaining economic efficiency on behalf of our clients has always been a guiding principle for the Firm. Zarwin Baum has an extensive history of actively assisting insurance and self-insured clients to achieve the desired result in a cost-effective manner. We employ a department policy requiring immediate evaluation and settlement efforts, efficiency of attorney time, frequent use of paralegals and when appropriate, aggressive use of mediation and binding arbitrations.

We fully understand that “success” is defined by our ability to bring the case to a swift and favorable resolution.  For us, “life of claim” is not amorphous insurance jargon used by our clients, but a concept that we fully understand and target as the measuring stick to evaluate our own in-house performance.  We pride ourselves in our ability to promptly and efficiently close files.

The firm brings a unique and practical perspective to the handling of defense matters that positions Zarwin Baum ahead of the typical insurance defense firms. Unlike most defense firms, Zarwin Baum is a full-service law firm with numerous practice areas beyond insurance defense. As a result, when a defense matter involves an unusual area of the law, members of the Casualty and Professional Group are able to collaborate with other Zarwin Baum attorneys, experienced in that area of the law, who will provide practical guidance and serve as an in-house consultant, without the need to use costly experts simply to understand the background of a case.

Zarwin Baum’s network of investigators, expert witnesses and in-house 24 hour Emergency Response Team, allows us to provide on-scene fact gathering, securing of evidence and hiring of on-scene experts in the event of a sudden catastrophic claim. Cloaked in the attorney-client privilege, our attorneys can speak with the insured’s employees without concern that those discussions will later be discoverable. Our firm has handled numerous emergency responses over the years, including some of the most high-profile emergency responses in the country.

The Firm is a founding member of the Themis Advocates Group, a national network of highly-experienced insurance defense litigators. Themis allows Zarwin Baum to provide insurance and self-insured defense clients with a national footprint of insurance defense litigators, high-level educational opportunities and an enhanced means of attorney-client communication. The Firm utilizes the Themis network to assist with emergency responses or partner on a multi-state litigation.  

While prompt resolution is always our goal, often the demands of the plaintiff are excessive and unreasonable. When litigation is necessary the firm’s attorneys do not shy away from the courtroom. At the core of Zarwin Baum’s Casualty Defense Group lies its experienced trial team that has tried numerous casualty and professional liability cases to verdict. The Firm is regularly hired to defend many of the largest exposure and most high-profile cases in the region against some of the most prominent plaintiff attorneys in the country.  The attorneys at Zarwin Baum are technologically savvy, battle-tested, resourceful and utilize an aggressive, no-holds-barred litigation style designed to place our clients in the best position to achieve a favorable result.
