WILDFIRES & CATASTROPHES

In every instance, subrogation arising from wildfires and other multi-party catastrophes is complex. From their inception, these losses demand the coordinated substantial time and effort from teams of top-notch sophisticated lawyers and support staff with the extensive experience needed to manage, organize, investigate, litigate, and prevail in these hard-fought cases. BLWM’s attorneys deploy well-honed investigative skills and in-depth knowledge toward wildfire and catastrophic loss subrogation.

Our substantial experience is illustrated by a few of the wildfire and catastrophic losses with which we have been involved:
