Insurance Law

SHK’s insurance law practice has grown in step with our construction law practice. While SHK has historically provided construction-focused insurance coverage advice and insurance litigation representation for engineers, architects, developers, land surveyors, real estate agents and others in the industry, our insurance law practice has since expanded to become one of the cornerstones of our firm. Our insurance lawyers represent all types of professionals, including insurance brokers, mortgage brokers, financial advisors, lawyers and health care workers.

Our Insurance Lawyers

Our insurance lawyers provide insurance coverage opinions, and represent both insurers and insureds in coverage disputes. SHK’s insurance law team has experience spanning a range of insurance matters including:

  • Professional liability claims
  • Commercial general liability claims
  • Subrogated claims
  • Professional disciplinary claims
  • Coverage claims
  • Insurance litigation

One of SHK’s commitments to our clients is to cultivate a solid understanding of your business. Our insurance lawyers strive to be fully knowledgeable about your profession and work environment. Another advantage is our access to pertinent resources, such as a full spectrum of experts and consultants – including authorities within your profession – to ensure that you are provided with a complete defence.

Professional Liability Lawyers

Health care professionals, lawyers, accountants, financial advisors, architects, engineers and other professionals make major decisions in their work that affect the health and financial well-being of others. This responsibility carries the weight of liability, causing professionals to sometimes face allegations of negligence, breach of professional standards or even criminal charges.

SHK’s professional liability lawyers have substantial experience in handling both lawsuits and disciplinary hearings at the regulatory level. In addition, our professional liability lawyers will proactively advise you in assessing and mitigating potential risks.
