Information Technology in Large-Scale Losses

W&A was retained on virtually every large World Trade Center IT equipment claim (ranging from $10 million - $300 million for the IT portion). Based our evaluation of the IT equipment, we determined the scope of damage, required corrective action, comparable replacement equipment, and repair options. In many cases, we proved to the Insureds that the equipment was not damaged and also proved the claimed replacement equipment included upgrades, which saved our clients hundreds of millions of dollars. In addition, we helped several Insureds develop plans to mitigate operations impacts due to downed or to-be-transferred IT equipment.
