Within: Insurance: advice to insurers

Squire Patton Boggs’ insurance and reinsurance practice ‘brings a rock-solid commitment to client service’ and is well known for its litigation and arbitration expertise. It is defending Resolute Management against a claim of tortious interference as a result of the handling of a claim under policies issued by Lloyd’s, OneBeacon, Continental and several AIG carriers. It is also representing General Re Life Corporation, as the reinsurer of ReliaStar Insurance Company, in an ERISA action. Representing Alterra America Insurance Company in coverage litigation against the NFL is another key highlight. In New York Larry Schiffer is ‘exceptional’, ‘wonderfully easy to work with’ and is a ‘knowledgeable and experienced reinsurance arbitration practitioner’. Also recommended in New York are Suman Chakraborty, who has ‘deep experiences and is particularly well versed in all discovery issues’, as well as the ‘first-rate’ Eridania Perez. Practice head Patrick Dugan and Mary Jo Hudson in Columbus, who heads the insurance regulatory team, and Newark’s Mark Sheridan are also recommended. Deirdre Johnson and Paul Kalish recently joined the Washington DC office from Crowell & Moring LLP. Former practice head John Nonna has retired.
