John Felice is a shareholder of Hermes, Netburn, O'Connor & Spearing, P.C. He has substantial experience representing insurers, insurance claim administrators, and other stakeholders in connection with complex insurance coverage matters involving toxic tort, asbestos, fidelity, bad faith, products liability, general liability, professional liability, directors and officers liability, sexual abuse and other claims.

His wide-ranging experience also includes representing manufacturers and distributors of asbestos-containing products in toxic tort cases pending in multiple jurisdictions. Mr. Felice has been involved in several jury trials in the Massachusetts asbestos litigation and he recently was part of the trial team which obtained a defense verdict, after a three week jury trial, on behalf of the alleged successor-in-interest to a manufacturer of asbestos-containing products installed aboard U.S. Navy ships. This was only the third case to be tried to verdict in the Massachusetts asbestos litigation in the past decade.

In addition to his insurance and toxic tort practice, Mr. Felice has vast experience defending product liability claims involving motor homes, aircraft, motor vehicle, heavy, industrial and manufacturing equipment, consumer products such as appliances and lawn mowers, and construction and safety equipment, among others. He also litigates premises liability claims, including negligent security claims. Finally, Mr. Felice represents owners, general contractors, subcontractors and architects in the defense of construction-related litigation, including personal injury and wrongful death, defective workmanship and breach of contract claims, and he represents sureties in all aspects of bond claims, including negotiation of project completion arrangements, handling of payment bond claims, and pursuit of salvage recoveries.
