Coverage Strategy Development

Restorical Research specializes in transforming legacy insurance policies into tangible assets for environmental liability coverage. With expert navigation of historical records, we develop robust coverage strategies to maximize claims recovery for our clients. Every day, we employ inventive strategies to access policies that are forty years and even older, often for clients who were not the original policyholders, ensuring that all avenues for coverage are explored and utilized successfully.

What Coverage Strategy Development Involves

Unlocking the potential of “hidden assets” for environmental liabilities begins with discovery. Let’s explore how we create value from historical insurance policies:

The Coverage Strategy process begins with a thorough review of the Trigger Analysis, specifically the “Big Three Data Sets”: Site History, Environmental Review and Insurance Coverage.


Next, we leverage our proprietary database made up of Restorical Research’s internal audit of thousands of past claims.

The goal: determine how the carrier(s) involved with the subject claim have acted in the past, with similar type claims, to approve tendered claims and obtain coverage.


Then, we craft a tailored strategy to secure the coverage you need by integrating the Trigger Analysis and the results of our proprietary database.


When our clients are elevated to Task 2, our role then shifts to collaborating closely with your legal counsel. Starting with bringing counsel up to speed with our Trigger Analysis. We then perfect the insurance Coverage Strategy with legal input. Finally, a tender letter is crafted and sent to the carrier(s).


We overcome obstacles raised by the carrier(s) with innovative solutions to ensure that even non-policyholder clients can leverage old insurance benefits for present needs. We champion your project to advocate for insurance coverage, without the need for litigation.
