Remaining Claims Related to Receiverships of Florida’s Largest Property Insurers Dismissed – January 2016

The remaining claims related to the receiverships of Southern Family Insurance Company, Florida Preferred Property Insurance Company, and Atlantic Preferred Insurance Company – suits against officers and directors - were dismissed in January 2016 after approximately ten years of litigation.  The firm had represented the related, non-regulated service companies in chapter 11 proceedings that were successfully concluded in 2012.  The firm continued to advise and represent six of the individual defendants following conclusion of the chapter 11 case.  Damage claims of over one billion dollars were asserted and were vigorously contested.  Harley Riedel and Becky Ferrell-Anton handled the firm’s representation in this matter.
