TECH E&O INSURANCE CLAIMS HANDLED BY EXPERIENCED TECHNOLOGY ATTORNEYS
In addition to serving as Tech E&O panel counsel for insurers located in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, and nationwide, our firm also supports the corporate technology legal departments of a number of global insurers by providing counseling with respect to the insurer’s own corporate technology transactions (software licensing and custom development, SaaS, professional IT services, cloud hosting and cloud-based software applications, and open source software).
STRONG INSURANCE DEFENSE BACKGROUND
As a former prosecutor and partner at one of Connecticut’s largest litigation and insurance defense firms, our co-founder Kane Bennett has experience working in several specialty areas of insurance defense, including Tech E&O. Attorney Bennett also has years of experience representing technology companies regarding lawsuits, contract disputes, and general counsel-type services.
IN-HOUSE INSURANCE CARRIER EXPERIENCE
As former in-house counsel for the corporate technology legal department of a global insurer, our co-founder David Benoit approaches large scale technology transactions from a unique insider’s perspective. Because of his firsthand experience and knowledge of how technology transactions are put together, he is able to quickly understand where a technology transaction has fallen apart.
Our technology lawyers have deep experience working with in-house and third-party IT professionals. We are intimately versed in the life cycle of complicated technology transactions, including RFP generation, vendor selection, contract drafting and negotiation, SOW, as well as project planning and change order drafting. Our technology attorneys have counseled customer IT professionals and IT vendors on all stages of technology projects, including vendor scoping, user requirements, solution design, application build, testing, implementation, and post-implementation.
