Our Mission


Achieve Better Results for Our Clients at Lower and Predictable Pricing

With Bain & Barkley’s fixed rate fees, you know what the defense costs will be up front. For more complex cases, we apply the same process efficiencies used in our fixed fee cases to allow for cost-effective defense budgets that don’t sacrifice results.

More than 25 years of personal litigation experience by each shareholder provides us with a rare breadth and depth of knowledge in the small P&C and non-standard insurance carrier world. We fully understand the unique challenges claims managers face: lowering the open case inventory rate, decreasing L&E costs and managing monthly bill reviews.

Claims managers and adjusters turn to us – and stay with us as long-term clients – because we’re innovative outside counsel that create fee solutions customized to meet the complexity of the work assigned. The firm has been able to do this because our attorneys focus on quickly resolving cases, when appropriate, and giving sound strategic litigation and business advice for cases that need to be tried. We do this while being responsive, flexible and metrics-driven.

“It's not just customized pricing. Prospects also decide to partner with us because they know we understand both the unique challenges they face and the intricate dynamics of the non-standard insurance industry.”

Our Approach

As personable as we are professional, one of the firm’s shareholders will collaborate with you from the beginning, listening first, and then earning your trust each step of the way by demonstrating knowledge of your unique business model, and working closely with your staff to understand all areas of your business, not just the claims department. The more we know how your company works as an insurance carrier, the greater efficiencies we can offer. As our relationship grows, we build on that trust by wisely using the information you’ve shared concerning case management, quantitative analysis and budget forecasting.
