Overview

Thomas Flynn’s practice focuses on insurance coverage with experience in property and casualty, professional liability, first party, construction defect, environmental, excess liability, bad faith and other extracontractual matters in Texas, California and across the United States. Thomas has extensive experience with drafting coverage opinions, reservations of rights and declinations of coverage for multiple jurisdictions. He also has brought to resolution complex policy claims and lawsuits in state and federal courts in multiple jurisdictions involving bad faith, duty to defend, “relation back” issues and additional insured coverage.

Before joining Thompson Coe, Thomas worked in house for a major carrier managing litigation of complex coverage and liability claims, including declaratory judgment and rescission actions.

Representative Experience
  • Resolved a coverage dispute in legal malpractice action arising from a medical malpractice claim, where the alleged tortfeasor sought coverage under the insured’s policy, and the tortfeasor’s relationship with the insured, and, therefore coverage, was in controversy.
  • Oversaw rescission litigation by a major carrier of an errors and omissions policy where one of the principals of the insured organization concealed an embezzlement claim.
  • Resolved an accounting malpractice claim involving the insured’s alleged defective S-Corporation election and taxes and penalties arising therefrom.
  • Negotiated a policy buy-back from insured “asset protection” specialists pursued by several dozen high net worth clients after aggressive tax shelter investment schemes lost money and failed to reduce taxes.
