Partner, Insurance and Reinsurance Practice Group.
I retired from the Zelle Hofmann Voelbel & Mason LLP partnership at the end of 2014 where my practice focused on counseling insurer and reinsurer clients in connection with property insurance claims and dispute resolution nationally.
Representative insurance litigation and ADR matters include property damage and time element claims arising out of the 9/11 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, claim handling and coverage issues arising out of fire and EC, earthquake, hurricane and flood catastrophes, pollution, builder’s risk and boiler-machinery losses.
Representative reinsurance matters include number of occurrences, treaty reinstatement, recoverability of loss adjustment expenses, applicability of aggregate limits, scope of facultative reinsurer’s liability, and allocation of subrogation recovery between a cedent and treaty and facultative reinsurers.
In addition to my law practice, I have served as an arbitrator in property damage and business income/time element insurance and reinsurance, boiler-machinery, product contamination and general commercial disputes. I have also served as an appraiser under first-party property insurance policies as respects property damage, business income and other time element loss measurement disputes.
