Professional Liability

Insurance Agents and Brokers
RMKB regularly represents insurance agents who are sued for professional negligence, breach of fiduciary duties, misrepresentation, and other torts, whether those agents are involved in property/casualty insurance, life and health insurance, employee benefit plans, or financial planning. Examples of this representation include the defense of an insurance broker on allegations of issuing the wrong type of surety bond in a case involving several waste water treatment plans and a Class I waste disposal site in Santa Barbara County. The underlying matter involved 482 plaintiffs and many millions of dollars in claimed damages. This matter was resolved with our client paying a nominal amount toward a global settlement.
