Angela R. Elbert counsels clients on complex risk management and insurance issues and helps them obtain the maximum recovery possible when claims arise. She focuses her practice on advising entities and boards of directors on a wide variety of risk management issues, including indemnification agreements, negotiating insurance with the most favorable terms available in the marketplace, financial insolvency concerns and insurance aspects of corporate transactions and other business contracts.

She has significant experience in handling complex insurance coverage litigation, other commercial litigation, mediations and arbitrations, with an emphasis on representing policyholders in insurance coverage disputes nationwide involving virtually every line of insurance.

Angela’s clients and peers describe her as “fantastic” and a “leading light” whose “breadth of knowledge is matched only by her commendable work ethic.” Further, she is noted to be “a very tough litigator, but reasonable at the same time. She works hard to find solutions to problems and is very knowledgeable in this area.” (Chambers USA, America’s Leading Lawyers for Business). Additionally, in 2013, Illinois Super Lawyers named her a Top 10 Super Lawyer, and she appeared on the magazine’s cover in 2014.
