About Litchfield Cavo LLP

Resourceful nationwide insurance defense attorneys

Litchfield Cavo LLP is a litigation defense law firm founded in 1998 on one principle — client service comes first.

It is natural to assume that a firm that has grown to more than 270 attorneys in more than twenty offices nationwide may be impersonal and provide limited accessibility to attorneys. We pride ourselves on being the opposite. We blend the vast resources of a nationwide law firm with the responsive service and reasonable billing practices typically found only at small firms.

Our attorneys and staff value client relationships. We encourage communication that is open and honest. Most importantly, integrity and professionalism are visible in every action.

A reputation for excellence

The firm’s partners — who outnumber associates — average more than 20 years of trial experience. The attorneys harness the wisdom accumulated over those years, and by collaborating in a dynamic work environment, deliver the caliber of representation insurance carriers and self-insured businesses demand. Clients trust the firm and consistently reward us with referrals.

Litchfield Cavo attorneys are widely recognized for:

  • Accessibility. Fostering long-term relationships is integral to the firm’s practice. Attorneys take the time to understand clients’ objectives, discuss options and then partner with them to devise an appropriate defense strategy. Open communication is paramount.
  • Courtroom skill. We are a firm of trial lawyers. In a recent 12-month period we averaged 14 trials per month, with more than 500 first-chair trial days involving 75 Litchfield Cavo attorneys. About 40 percent were settled during trial, and of the rest, 95 percent brought successful results for our clients.
  • Adaptability. Our attorneys are always prepared to take a case to trial. Adversaries know this, which permits us to negotiate from a position of strength. Client budgets and objectives guide us in determining whether to proceed to trial or negotiate a favorable settlement.
  • Innovative strategies. Our focus on insurance and defense litigation affords our lawyers the knowledge and resources to craft creative solutions to some of the most complex issues.


Litchfield Cavo is committed to creating a work environment that values each individual’s contributions to our community, and we actively endeavor to foster and nurture diverse talent. We recognize that it is by working together every day with mutual respect for the different backgrounds, perspectives and experiences of people at the firm that we can most effectively develop our shared strengths and assets. These values are the foundation of our firm and enhance our ability to work together as a team so that we can continue to provide our clients with the best legal services available.

Litchfield Cavo’s commitment to diversity stems naturally from the values that shape our firm: adaptability, innovation and integrity. Diversity is not only a value; it is an asset. Our ability to respond to the needs of our clients in an increasingly open and global environment requires that the members of our community have a broad range of skills and experiences. Litchfield Cavo strives to recruit and develop the finest talent from all backgrounds and beliefs to further these goals and offer our clients the benefits of an ever-broadening range of cultural and life experiences that complement our legal proficiency and expertise.
