David L. Elkind has recovered more than $1.3 billion for corporate policyholders in a wide range of insurance coverage disputes. In a career spanning nearly three decades, he has successfully represented Fortune 500 corporations, numerous energy companies, and a host of other clients in disputes over environmental, asbestos, mass tort, as well as numerous other claims, has won eight of nine trials and has argued precedent-setting appeals before the highest state courts in New York and Massachusetts as well as the First and Second Circuits.
In recent years, Dave's practice has focused largely on insurance coverage claims for environmental liabilities and mass torts, which are among the most complex of coverage claims. Dave has a talent for giving juries the deep historical context they need to how disputed insurance policy language should be interpreted -- for example, how to distinguish willful acts from legal and customary business activities. He also aggressively pursues favorable settlement opportunities at all times, regardless of the status of litigation.
