Adam P. Handfinger, Co-Managing Partner of the firm’s Miami Office, was quoted as a source in Law360 in a story entitled ‘Defect Notice May Trigger Defense Coverage in Florida’ about the Florida Supreme Court decision which came out December 14, 2017 in Altman v. Crum & Forster. Mr. Handfinger made oral arguments before the Court which ruled that a proceeding for resolving (Chapter 558) construction defect disputes prior to litigation constitutes a “suit” that may trigger a general liability insurer’s duty to defend a policyholder, provided that the insurance company consents to the insured’s participating in the process. Mr. Handfinger’s client, Altman Contractors, prevailed in this decision which is extremely beneficial for general contractors.
