CLIMATE CHANGE

SBRS lawyers are national leaders in climate change law, with particularly unique experience and success representing clients in the growing space were insurance and climate change intersect. In Steadfast v. AES, our attorneys served as lead litigation, and co-appellate, counsel in the nation's first climate change coverage case--where we successfully established that global warming nuisance suits are not covered under CGL policies. Our attorneys have spoken on climate change issues before the world's largest scientific body (at the annual meeting of the American Chemical Society), participated in United Nations Conferences, been featured by the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, Best's Review, the National Law Journal, and dozens of insurance industry publications, and have been featured speakers at annual events held by the CPCU, PLUS, DRI, and San Francisco Board of Marine Underwriters. SBRS currently represents and regularly consults with several insurer clients on climate change litigation, climate related coverage matters, climate risk disclosure, new climate risk products, and climate change underwriting matters. SBRS attorney William Stewart's book, Climate of Uncertainty, published in 2010, continues to be one of Amazon's highest ranked books on global warming.
