Description:  Represent insurers in coverage matters and insurance coverage litigation

  • Develop litigation strategy for insurance coverage disputes, and perform key roles in insurance coverage litigation and arbitration;
  • Conduct complex and rigorous legal research and analysis, and draft memoranda and position letters;
