Insurance Recovery & Counseling


Nathan Lander is a partner in Proskauer’s Insurance Recovery & Counseling Group who represents clients in high-stakes disputes with their insurance companies as well as counseling them regarding a wide array of insurance issues.

During the course of his career, Nate has assisted clients in recovering more than $1 billion in disputes with their insurers through litigations, arbitrations, mediations and negotiations. Nate prides himself in helping clients reach favorable resolutions with their insurers where possible, but when insurers refuse to pay, Nate has aggressively litigated coverage disputes against them in courts and arbitrations throughout the country.

Although Nate has represented a wide range of policyholder clients – including Fortune 500 companies and professional sports teams, among others – Nate is particularly well-known for his representations of asset management clients in insurance disputes. Nate has represented numerous private equity firms and portfolio companies, hedge funds, registered funds, venture capital firms, and other asset managers in disputes with insurance companies, including claims for coverage under D&O, E&O, crime, life, property, and other policies. For example, Nate was recently lead counsel for a private equity firm in a litigation over $100 million of coverage its insurers refused to provide for claims against the private equity firm arising from the bankruptcy of a portfolio company.

In addition to his litigation practice, Nate also regularly advises clients on risk management issues, including structuring of insurance programs and the negotiation and drafting of policy language, in order to help protect clients in the event of a claim or loss. Nate has particular experience with respect to the insurance markets and products for asset management clients. He has assisted numerous asset managers of all types and portfolio companies in reviewing and negotiating potential insurance policies or programs, including D&O, E&O, EPL, fiduciary, crime, cyber, reps & warranties and other specialized products.
