In addition to prosecuting and defending declaratory judgment actions relating to insurance and indemnity obligations, Ms. Fridegotto also advises domestic and foreign insurers in the handling of first-party property damage claims, third-party liability claims, casualty liability, products liability and employee, director, and officer liability actions.
