My expertise derives from senior level experience as a General Counsel and Chief of Claims, in building a top-level claims department from scratch, and in dealing with difficult and challenging claims in many lines of business.
Areas of focus include claim handling, good faith, bad faith, litigation management, claim department management, third party administration, and the litigation process. My background encompasses a wide range of insurance issues including long-tail claims, products liability, directors and officers, errors and omissions, professional liability, personal lines, and personal injury.
Having been both a private practice litigator and a senior insurance company executive, I offer broad and deep understandings of the insurance business and the litigation process.
From the business standpoint, Im able to focus on the linkage between an insurance policy and the parties business bargain.
From the litigation standpoint, my years in private practice and as a senior legal/claims executive give me a deep appreciation of the need to communicate with judges and jurors clearly and directly. I understand, as well, the importance a coherent narrative that incorporates the key themes of my findings.
I provide clients with sophisticated analysis, clear thought and presentation, and excellence in writing. Im efficient, timely, and embrace team-work.
