Since 1998 insurance lawyers at Branch MacMaster LLP have effectively handled insurance coverage and defence matters. We specialize in a variety of claims for commercial insurers. We defend insureds against lawsuits alleging occupiers’ liability, product liability, motor vehicle liability, professional negligence, and construction defects. We also advise insurers on insurance coverage, and defend insurers sued on their policies.

We are licensed to practice across Canada including in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and the Northwest Territories. As experienced trial and appellate lawyers, we work with our clients to resolve claims before trial or proceed through trial and appeals. Our responsive and economic approach, coupled with our many years’ experience delivering successful outcomes to our insurance clients, makes us a reliable partner for coverage and defence matters.
