Within: Insurance: advice to policyholders

Blank Rome LLP provides ‘practical and deliberate advice’ to policyholders across a range of areas, including cybersecurity insurance, sexual abuse liability and environmental insurance. Practice head James Murray ‘has a wealth of experience and his advice is pragmatic’, and he and Jared Zola in New York are representing the Catholic Diocese of Duluth in proceedings against five of the Diocese’s historical liability insurers, while John Heintz represented NRG Energy and its subsidiary Louisiana Generating in a dispute surrounding coverage for Clean Air Act liabilities. International Materials, Yucaipa, Casella Waste Systems and EDF Trading are also key clients. John Gibbons, Justin Lavella and recently promoted partner Omid Safa are standout individuals, as is Lisa Campisi in New York. The team was recently bolstered by the arrival in Los Angeles of Linda Kornfeld from Kasowitz Benson Torres LLP, as well as David Thomas and of counsel Julia Holt. Named individuals are based in Washington DC unless otherwise indicated.
