I have over twenty-five years of experience litigating insurance coverage disputes involving environmental and toxic tort, construction defect, catastrophic losses, advertising injury and personal injury, directors and officers liability, business interruption, life and disability insurance claims.

I regularly represent a number of insurance guaranty funds in coverage litigation and disputes with receivers of insolvent insurers.

I also have significant experience defending products liability, environmental, securities fraud and complex business litigation cases.
