Insurers want predictability when it comes to claims which can be difficult given the variety of risks covered. Condominium and Common Interest Association Law is a unique area of law in Illinois as there is both comprehensive statute and substantial case law governing associations which results in a myriad of ways an Association can face litigation. Cervantes, Chatt & Prince dedicates a significant amount of its practice to Association law.
When insurers place their claim coverage with CCP, they engage attorneys whom practice association on a daily basis. The attorneys at CCP are frequent authors of trade articles, regular speakers at association related seminars, and recognized faces in courthouses throughout Chicago and the adjoining counties. Insurers can rely on the ability of CCP to identify issues early in the claim and to advocate for the insured and its insured effectively and efficiently.
An insurer that works with CCP, enjoys discounted rates that CCP extends to association clients, budget-minded billing practices, and implementation of technology that streamlines and enhances communication and ultimately the decision making process. Because CCP is a multi-disciplined practice, rest assured is if a claim expands beyond association law, we are able to see a matter to resolution. CCP has practice groups in Real Estate, Construction Litigation, and Professional Liability to name a few.
We at CCP welcome the opportunity to meet and discuss the way CCP will be an effective source of advice and zealous advocacy. Association law is a defining aspect of who CCP is as a law firm and the attorneys at CCP know how to match their skills to the needs of an insurer.
