Richard Berrow advises the firm’s clients on negotiating and obtaining insurance coverage and enforcing claims against their insurers, by negotiation and litigation. His practice includes coverage for directors and officers, transactional representations and warranties, fiduciary liability, errors and omissions, cyber risks, business interruption loss, and products liability, as well as general liability and property coverages for business. Richard regularly handles complex insurance problems, including those arising from mergers & acquisitions, corporate insolvency and reorganization, and large mining and industrial risks and losses, and litigation cases requiring assessment of opposing parties’ insurance coverage. His clients’ successes have produced leading British Columbia decisions on the duty of liability insurers to provide independent defence counsel to their insureds, when foreign insurers must accept local law and jurisdiction, and coverage for defamation and unfair competition liabilities. Richard also advises clients and assists other firm lawyers with contract provisions for insurance coverage, risk allocation, and indemnity.
