Litchfield Cavo is engaged in the practice of civil litigation primarily on behalf of the insurance industry and self-insured corporations. The firm specializes in the defense of our clients' commercial and personal interests in a wide variety of matters including, but not limited to, the practice areas broadly identified herein. Additionally, a significant part of our practice involves the defense of insurance carriers in coverage and bad faith disputes arising out of all forms of commercial, personal and specialty products.
Litchfield Cavo is defined by its partners' significant trial experience. Our litigation partners actually outnumber our associates, and have each been litigating, on average, nearly 20 years. Our lawyers try or settle during trial dozens of lawsuits each year. Our reputation has been built on our lawyers' willingness and readiness to try any case to verdict, while understanding that such preparation and aggressive litigation strategy often promotes favorable and efficient settlement of cases.
Litchfield Cavo is a rapidly growing firm, with roughly six times the number of attorneys with which we started in 1999. Our seven offices enable Litchfield Cavo to represent our clients both regionally and nationally.
