Historically, Mendes has represented the commercial insurers of the large, multinational accounting firms. As a result, we have played a key role in the significant accountants’ professional liability cases of the past 30 years. Mendes currently represents insurers for a majority of the top 40 accounting firms in the US. While domestic litigation and claims are our primary focus, we also have extensive experience outside the United States.
Additionally, Mendes represents several preeminent international reinsurers of the multinational accounting firms and works regularly with their captive insurance companies based in Bermuda and in the U.S. In the case of the captives, we not only offer claims advice, but assist in key communications with their reinsurers. Multinational litigation is common in the current environment, so we often travel to foreign jurisdictions to provide advice or oversight.
