Representing policyholders in litigation involving surplus lines/”non-admitted” insurance companies:
“Surplus lines” (also known as “non-admitted”) insurers are a form of company set up in part to avoid the full spectrum of regulations, solvency and other oversight requirements that apply to “admitted” companies. Surplus lines companies often will accept risks/insure customers that traditional (admitted) companies don’t want, but they also compete with admitted companies for customers. Regulators have less authority over their policy forms and operations. They don’t pay into state guaranty funds, which means their policyholders are not protected if they go belly up/become insolvent. Non-admitted/surplus lines insurers are playing an increasingly large role in today’s marketplace. They dominate the small business insurance market in many states including Texas and California, and are looking to take on a much larger share of the market for residential flood insurance.
