In addition to our deep experience at the trial and hearing level in insurance and reinsurance disputes, the industry views Sidley as having particular appellate capabilities, including one of the preeminent Supreme Court practices in the country. Lawyers in Sidley’s Appellate Practice routinely represent clients before the United States Supreme Court, state supreme courts, federal courts of appeals and other appellate forums. In addition to appearing on the National Law Journal “Appellate Hot List” six years running, Sidley’s appellate work has been featured in USA Today, BusinessWeek, The American Lawyer, Legal Times, The National Law Journal and Metropolitan Corporate Counsel.
Over recent decades, our lawyers have successfully represented U.S. insurance companies in many significant reinsurance appeals. In these decisions, the federal judiciary articulated new standards respecting both substantive and procedural aspects of reinsurance law and practice.
