Within Claim Legal, staff counsel attorneys represent individual and business policy holders in a wide variety of litigation. At Travelers, there are more than 650 attorneys in 62 offices throughout the United States who handle cases from inception through trial and appeal. Cases include automobile, general liability, construction, construction defect, subrogation, product liability and workers compensation.

Claim Legal attorneys provide an array of services, including analysis of first- and third-party coverage issues; litigation of coverage disputes and other claims against the company; examinations under oath; training, drafting and review of policy language; and assistance with regulatory and compliance matters.
