Except for Lewis Brisbois, the other firms had many appearances throughout the Gulf Coast.

The report defines “insurance” cases as those in which an insurer or policyholder is litigating one or more claims arising out of an insurance policy. The insurance case-type categories analyzed were: Auto Insurance, Uninsured Motorist/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM), Business Liability, Business Interruption, Life Insurance, Hurricane Related, and Homeowners Insurance.

The report looks back and analyzes law firm activity in 15 practice areas and from 2018 to 2020. Due to the unprecedented disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, it breaks down cases filed because of the virus.
