United States > Industry focus > Insurance: advice to policyholders

Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP‘s ‘very strong team’ has a ‘great insight into the representation of insurance brokers and a deep understanding of insurance coverage‘. ‘Excellent coverage lawyer‘ Christopher St. Jeanos achieved a positive verdict for Marsh USA in its $15m dispute with Lloyd’s and the owner of a yacht over property loss resulting from a fire. He also collaborated with ‘experienced and smart‘ Mitchell Auslander on the representation of multiple clients of Legal Services of New York City who received undervalued recovery payments after suffering property losses due to flooding by Superstorm Sandy. Both partners are based in New York.

United States > Dispute resolution > General commercial disputes

Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP is ‘very strong at resolving disputes, whether through negotiation, mediation, arbitration or trial’. It continues to be retained by its longstanding clients in complex litigation and also picked up several new clients including CBS and Xerox. Its expertise spans numerous sectors of the economy, and it is particularly notable in the financial services space. In one example, Todd Cosenza represented the lead underwriters of ADT’s IPO – which included Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley – in five putative class actions alleging misrepresentations and omissions in the offering documents. Tariq Mundiya is the litigation department chair; Mary Eaton heads the business and corporate litigation group; and Washington DC-based litigator Elizabeth Bower is a co-chair of the cybersecurity and privacy practice. Insurance and reinsurance litigation specialists Christopher St. Jeanos and Mitchell Auslander receive strong praise. Partners are located in New York unless otherwise stated.
