About Leder & Hale

Leder & Hale has the highest level of expertise in insurance defense, specifically in our four areas of focus: toxic torts, recreational boating, construction disputes and insurance coverage litigation. This permits us to leverage our resources and network to help our clients get results.

Our experience is hard to match. Our attorneys have been recognized by Martindale Hubbell, Super Lawyers and other rating organizations. We have handled thousands of related cases both in Maryland, D.C. and nationally. We have also published dozens of articles in these areas.

Whether we are advising on the scope of coverage or defending a lead paint poisoning case, we understand that companies are looking for solutions rather than someone to simply “handle” the case. We work closely with clients to devise and execute their strategy and to achieve their goals.

Measuring Success

Our objective is typically to achieve cost-effective results once responsibilities and liability are established. Success is measured against potential exposure, be it settling the case, taking it to trial or winning on summary judgment. This may mean scaling down the case so the trial is less expensive and the amount at risk is manageable.

We are experienced in trying cases to either a defense verdict or limited recovery.
