INSURANCE DEFENSE
Commercial Culpability



Defending Businesses and Insurance Carriers
Against A Variety of Claims

Kelly & Meenagh has been defending commercial enterprises and their insurance companies in lawsuits in the greater New York region for more than three decades. Considering the array of possible claims, our firm has had extensive experience with the many issues which plague such clients. This includes matters involving commercial contracts and other related subjects. The firm currently has cases pending in the Supreme Court in the counties of Westchester, Rockland, Putnam, Orange, Dutchess, Sullivan, Ulster and Columbia, as well as in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.

Aggressive, skillful and highly effective, our defense strategies and legal counsel are overwhelming obstacles which stifle our opponents. In the face of challenge, we emerge victorious.

Commercial Claims of Many Types


We have experience defending commercial organizations and their insurance companies for claims which range from general liability to financial disputes.

With over 74 years of combined experience, the firm’s founding partners are very adept at handling all defense cases exclusively in all phases of the process. When advantageous, they also pursue declaratory judgment actions regarding coverage issues and other insurance-related matters as means of establishing an immediate resolution to terms which could affect the final outcome of the case. This sometimes leads to the ensuing need to file an appeal, a separate process in which the firm has more than three decades of experience.

Accomplished in negotiation as well as litigation, our talented attorneys are highly practiced at potent spontaneous rebuttal to contradict any claim brought up in trial to positively support our clients’ stance. It is not uncommon for our firm to move for dismissal if a claim is viewed as without valid grounds. Should another defendant be implicated, we will discuss co-insurance or indemnification options if applicable.
