Fidelity & Surety

Clark Hill fidelity and surety attorneys have been called upon by leading industry groups to act as trusted advisors, both for purposes of drafting standard industry forms and assisting with educational programs, including serving as advisors to The Surety & Fidelity Association of America and the Fidelity Law Association of America. Our lawyers have extensive experience, both at home and abroad, advising clients in the investigation of claims involving employee dishonesty, theft, financial institution, savings and loan, commercial crime, and mortgage banker bonds. Our vast experience in handling every type of imaginable claim allows us to quickly and efficiently analyze the underlying facts of a claim and assess a client’s potential exposure.

We have been able to achieve excellent results for our fidelity and surety clients in the investigation phase of the claim, in analyzing and handling claims, in preparing the case for trial, in mediating and arbitrating bond claims, and in trying and winning trials and appeals. As a result, we are national fidelity bond claims counsel for one of the leading insurers in the industry, regional fidelity and surety counsel for other insurers, and we frequently are asked to represent clients both throughout North and South America, as well as overseas. We have been selected to represent insurers in some of the largest and most significant cases in the history of the industry. Clark Hill is truly the “go to” firm for fidelity and surety representation across the United States, and beyond.
