Obtained a favorable unanimous decision before the New Jersey Supreme Court on February 11, 2016, in the matter of Templo Fuente De Vida Corp. v. Nat’l Union Fire Ins. Co., 224 N.J. 189 (2016), that effectively broadened the scope of application of the “as soon as practicable” claim reporting requirement of a “claims made” D&O policy to reach instances where a claim is first made during the policy period but is nevertheless properly disclaimed by the carrier, without the carrier having to demonstrate appreciable prejudice, because the insured failed to provide notice of the claim “as soon as practicable."

Obtained dismissal of more than $1 million in malpractice claims against a New Jersey-based insurance agent in a summary judgment decision issued on July 24, 2012 in Essex County Superior Court.
