    Rich Mancino is a partner in the law firm Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP. He has substantial experience as lead trial and appellate counsel in insurance and reinsurance litigation and arbitrations involving excess/surplus lines, property/business interruption, professional liability, D&O, accident & health and weather coverages. He also represents US and international clients in securities, bankruptcy, and alter ego and corporate veil litigations, as well as M&A and syndicated loan disputes in courts around the country, and advises on corporate governance, SEC and regulatory matters and investigations, reinsurance contract review and analysis, and insolvency issues. His more recent work includes representing a foreign reinsurance company in a federal securities class action in which his firm persuaded the district court to exclude from the class all non-US purchasers who bought their shares on foreign stock exchanges. He also represented a German reinsurance company in disputes connected to the World Trade Center in which he argued successfully in the Second Circuit that legislation passed in the wake of the attacks did not abrogate private arbitration agreements, and then represented the client in the underlying arbitration. He has successfully argued appeals in the Second, Third and Seventh Circuits, and has mediated over 25 cases in the SDNY and EDNY. As a member of his firm’s Pro Bono Committee, Rich supervises numerous political asylum and other pro bono cases. He represented 56 scientific organizations as amici curiae in an appeal involving the constitutionality of a disclaimer regarding the teaching of evolution in public schools in Georgia, as well as a NJ high school student in his challenge to his teacher’s unconstitutional religious instruction and denigration of the science of evolution.
