Zelle is the industry leader in major catastrophe loss subrogation.  Zelle attorneys have successfully handled some of the largest and most complex commercial property insurance subrogation matters in the history of the insurance industry. Our founding partners were among the pioneers of insurance subrogation in the 1970's. We have recovered over $2 billion for the commercial property insurance industry through the subrogation process. Our international presence and strong local counsel network allow us to successfully pursue large loss subrogation matters throughout the United States and in many foreign countries.

Zelle specializes in subrogation arising from major catastrophic events, including fires, hurricanes, industrial explosions, and terrorist actions. As one example, Zelle attorneys led the Plaintiffs Executive Committee pursuing the $5 billion subrogation action against airlines and aviation security companies alleged to be responsible for the 9/11 terrorist attack. This historic litigation settled for $1.2 billion, at the time the largest subrogation recovery ever obtained by the insurance industry.

Zelle continues to work with the insurance industry in identifying and pursuing catastrophic loss subrogation opportunities, both in traditional areas and emerging risk exposures.
