Litigation, Arbitration, and Employment




David Newmann co-heads our Insurance Litigation group and manages the Philadelphia office Litigation team. He helps clients navigate and win – or, even better, avoid – white-knuckle commercial litigation. Dave’s experience runs the gamut. His cases include complex insurance coverage and “bad faith” litigation, consumer class actions, disputes under information technology, manufacturing, and distribution agreements, director and officer (D&O) litigation, and bankruptcy and insolvency proceedings.

Focusing on the insurance and telecommunications sectors, Dave uses his courtroom experience and business-oriented approach to solve litigation problems for key clients in other industries as well, such as manufacturing, industrial equipment, financial services, and food.

Dave’s insurance practice reaches every corner of the market. He knows his way around D&O, errors and omissions (E&O), cyber, fiduciary, mergers and acquisition (M&A) representation and warranty, crime/fidelity, commercial general liability, commercial property, and personal lines policies. He manages exposures ranging from sprawling securities and M&A litigation to products liability and personal injury mass torts. He works with clients to write and revise insurance contracts, evaluate emerging risks, analyze existing coverage programs, and resolve insurance regulatory issues.
