INSURANCE COVERAGE & RECOVERIES:

Insurance coverage and recovery litigation typically involves complex legal issues.  Although insurance policies are contracts, courts often apply legal principles and rules that are unique to the field of insurance.  Due to the complicated nature of insurance disputes, courts often look to decisions rendered by state and federal courts in other jurisdictions to determine the outcome of a dispute. Where there is no applicable case law, courts may look to custom and practice in the insurance industry.  As such, it is important to retain coverage counsel that has experience litigating coverage disputes on a national scale.

The insurance coverage attorneys at Kuhn Firm P.C. have been involved in the resolution of coverage disputes for well over twenty years.  John Kuhn, of counsel to the firm, was an insurance company claims executive for many years before becoming an attorney.  In that role, he was responsible for making coverage decisions on behalf of several national insurers.  Following his admission to the bar in 1984, John joined an insurance defense firm, where he was responsible for providing insurance coverage opinions and litigating coverage disputes on behalf of insurance company clients. 

Kevin Kuhn, the firm's President, began his professional career as an insurance claims adjuster.  Following his admission to the bar in 1992, Kevin joined Hinshaw & Culbertson, a national insurance defense firm, where he worked as an associate in the firm's insurance coverage group.  In 1996, Kevin joined Vedder Price in Chicago, where he went on to Chair its national insurance coverage practice.  While at Vedder Price, Kevin represented several large insurance companies in complex coverage litigation in state and federal courts in Illinois, Iowa, California, New Jersey, Tennessee, Michigan, Wisconsin, Oregon, Texas, Florida, Indiana, Minnesota, Connecticut, New York and other jurisdictions.  These multimillion dollar coverage disputes have included questions of coverage for construction accidents, environmental liabilities, directors and officers liability, broker/dealer professional liability, products liability and health and life insurance.
