Are you facing unexpected environmental cleanup costs? 
Restorical Research is here to offer you a lifeline. Imagine uncovering financial assets that transform your environmental liability into an opportunity.

Unlike other insurance archeologists, Restorical Research champions the policyholders, not the insurance carriers. With Restorical Research, you gain a partner that not only digs deep into the past to find “hidden asset” historical insurance policies but also stands with you and your legal team throughout the claim process.

Since our founding in 2001, our dedicated team of insurance archaeologists has successfully helped over 2,000 public and private policyholders and property owners by unearthing “hidden assets” – long-forgotten insurance policies that can be used to cover the cost of environmental cleanups. Working for business owners, property owners, developers, municipal governments, universities, ports and state agencies, we have successfully located billions of dollars of historical insurance coverage, ensuring our clients’ properties transition from dormant to developed without the burden of unnecessary costs.

Our Clients

“Our approach ensures the private sector remains in control of the problems created…not the taxpayers.”

Jeff Berebitsky

Our proven process begins with an intake call and onboarding procedure where you will be introduced to our team, and we will conduct an initial trigger analysis. We’ll then begin our research and deliverables phase, compiling site history and forming a coverage strategy. Once we’ve completed the research phase, we’ll determine if we’re a good fit for your case before drafting a Coverage Opinion Letter and beginning to manage your claim over a two to nine-month period. The journey concludes when your recovery goals are met, and your satisfaction is affirmed through a final review and exit interview.

Take the first step towards liberating your property from environmental liabilities. Reach out to us—call our office or fill out our form. We will promptly initiate a no-obligation discussion about how we can serve your specific needs.
