My primary focus is on Alternative Dispute Resolution of D&O and professional liability losses.  My experience with (re)insurance coverage issues is that very few should be fully litigated and most can be resolved at mediation.   As an experienced company rep for insurance carriers in high stakes D&O, Lawyers and Accountants professional liability cases I know what it takes to get a mutually acceptable result.
