Daily Journal lists H&L victory as one of the top five appellate results in California in 2015.
February 24, 2016
For the third consecutive year, the Los Angeles & San Francisco Daily Journal has listed one of Horvitz & Levy LLP’s victories as one of the top five appellate results of the year. The Daily Journal’s top five list for 2015 includes the California Supreme Court’s decision in Hartford Casualty Insurance Co. v. J.R. Marketing LLC. Horvitz & Levy acted as lead appellate counsel in that case, in association with its co-counsel at Wiggin & Dana LLP, Mendes & Mount LLP, and Wildman Palmer, LLP. Our team secured a victory for Hartford Casualty Insurance Company in a dispute over whether insurers can seek repayment from a law firm that acts as independent counsel for a policyholder and then submits an inflated bill to the insurer. Extensive amicus briefs were filed on both sides, and the opinion is expected to influence the law in other jurisdictions.
