Clarendon National Insurance Company - Arbitration Clause Enforcement
2001

Representation of Clarendon National Insurance Company in obtaining a court order compelling both a reinsurer and a non-signatory to arbitration agreements to arbitrate a premium payment dispute. Clarendon claimed that its agent owed several million dollars in premiums, and filed a demand for arbitration in New York in accordance with the agent's contract with Clarendon. The agent, located in California, tried to keep the dispute in California—and out of arbitration. We prevailed on both issues, and the case went to arbitration in New York. (Clarendon National Insurance Company v. Lan, et al., 152 F.Supp.2d 506 (S.D.N.Y. 2001)) (Prior firm experience)
