Matthew Schroeder

Akerman LLP

Matt Schroeder represents major insurance companies in litigation with significant exposure claims that pose extreme risk of loss to the company. He advises insurance companies not only on related policy coverage issues and disputes, but also on overall environmental regulatory compliance and preventive measures to avoid similar disputes and mitigate future risks.

Matt is committed to understanding his clients’ individual needs and is valued by his clients for his responsiveness and ability to create business solutions to coverage issues outside of the litigation and normal dispute resolution processes. Matt and his team have particular experience in coverage issues related to environmental risk policies, including those involving COVID-19/Coronavirus and emerging contaminants such as PFAS, PFOA, PFOS, and GenX. Matt’s experience also encompasses counseling insurance companies on a wide variety of insurance policies and risks, including commercial general liability, workers compensation, construction defect, and reinsurance.

Additionally, Matt focuses his practice on pursuing subrogation recoveries, including under CERCLA, on behalf of his insurance clients, to seek redress from other potentially responsible parties who have caused or contributed to the covered loss. Some of his recent subrogation lawsuits have included claims against the United States for its role in contaminating former munitions sites.

Matt also has significant experience in representing corporations and individuals, as both plaintiffs and defendants, in complex commercial disputes and litigation throughout the country in multiple state and federal courts. His experience includes not only trial, but also arbitrations throughout the United States as well as internationally. He brings the same level of responsiveness and resolution creativity to representing his commercial litigation clients as he does his insurance company clients.
