Mediation - Arbitration - Expert Witness - Consulting
I have enjoyed a highly successful thirty-year career as an insurance and reinsurance coverage litigator, with a concentration in Directors & Officers, Professional Liability, and Complex Casualty Claims. I also have arbitrated numerous complex reinsurance disputes as first chair. I am the former Chair of the Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee of the American Bar Association (TIPS Section), and the former Chair of the Reinsurance Committee of the ABA. I am an approved Dispute Resolution Services Arbitrator by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). I have long served as a Judge Pro Tem, appointed by the Commerce Court in Philadelphia to achieve settlement of the most complex commercial cases before the Court. As a mediator, my background and focus facilitates clear communication and accurate evaluations, enabling me to chart the most efficient path toward resolution. As a professional mediator, I focus on the area of the law that I know thoroughly: insurance (including common underlying claims, such as E&O and construction lawsuits) and reinsurance.
