Insurance is not synonymous with litigation. Although Axley insurance attorneys do significant insurance litigation, both against and on behalf of insurers, there are other areas of vital concern to individuals and businesses. Insurance is a regulated industry, subject to numerous state and federal laws affecting the solicitation, sale and administration of insurance services and products. Axley’s insurance attorneys have many years of experience in the insurance industry, ranging from a nationally recognized authority on legal issues affecting insurance agency ownership and operations, to a former general counsel of a life and health insurance company. This practical, working knowledge of the field and markets allows Axley to provide the advice and counsel to maneuver the insurance maze.

Axley can advise and counsel in areas such as:
  • Administration, servicing and reinsurance agreements
  • Agent contracting, marketing agreements and joint venture agreements
  • Assisting with formation, sale, acquisition or merger of agencies, insurers, subsidiaries or blocks of business
  • Assisting with obtaining a Certificate of Authority to conduct business in Wisconsin and other states
  • Claims adjustments/administration
  • Licensing/disciplinary matters before the Wisconsin Office of the Commissioner of Insurance-both insurer and agent/agency
  • Market conduct issues
  • Policy drafting and form filing
  • Policy interpretation/construction regarding coverage
  • Privacy issues
  • Risk management/loss control
