Description:Cozen O'Connor is looking for a litigation associate with at least two years of experience to join the Life Insurance & Annuities group in the Philadelphia office. The candidate would be assisting with cases that address sophisticated insurance and financial services relating to Stranger-Originated Life Insurance (STOLI), as well as other commercial litigation issues, in federal and state courts all across the country. Ideal candidates will have experience with general commercial litigation issues, but strong writing, analysis, and advocacy skills are most important.
In addition to the group's representation on STOLI issues, Cozen's life insurance and annuity clients depend on us to provide counsel and to litigate issues surrounding their products in federal and state courts across the country. Our group's experience includes, among other things, counseling clients and litigating issues regarding: bad faith and other extracontractual claims, brokers and agents, foreign death claims, foreign nationals, identity fraud, insurance department investigations and proceedings, lapses, material misrepresentations, payment issues, policy values and premium changes, prompt payment statues, other secondary market issues, suspicious deaths, and structured settlements.
