At Norris Choplin Schroeder LLP, we focus on the complex insurance coverage matters unique to the area of environmental law.

We litigate the wide-ranging issues that arise in environmental insurance declaratory judgment actions tried in Indiana. Our combined expertise in environmental remediation enforcement actions and commercial Comprehensive General Liability coverage has allowed us to develop systematic approaches to the recurrent issues in this highly specialized field of insurance law.

Since 1986, Norris Choplin Schroeder has represented international, national, regional and local property and casualty carriers. We regularly advance insurer interests in a variety of areas, including the scope of the insuring agreement, enforceability of exclusions, trigger of coverage, defense and indemnity allocations.

Among our representative experience, we served as counsel for a Fireman's Fund company in General Housewares Corp. v. National Surety Corp., 741 N.E.2d 408, a case of first impression in Indiana that lead to the adoption of the known loss defense for insurers.
