Expertise DescriptionI have more than 20 years experience in the field of Insurance and Commercial Litigation. My focus of practice includes representation of insurers in complex insurance coverage matters, particularly in the areas of environmental pollution, toxic torts, construction defect, product defect / recall, and professional liability matters. I represent insurers in coverage litigation arising from claims concerning the current era of Pollution Liability and Environmental Impairment Liability Policies. My services further include monitoring counsel services, assisting insurers and other stakeholders in working with defense counsel, the insured, and its coverage counsel for evaluation exposure, and effectively handling and resolving claims for which a defense and / or coverage is being afforded. I frequently represent parties in commercial litigation, including environmental, construction defects, professional errors, and omission matters. I have more than 10 years expert witness experience with consultations, deposition, and courtroom testimony.
