Willkie Again Named an Insurance Practice Group of the Year by Law360

January 14, 2016

Law360 honors Willkie’s Insurance and Reinsurance Group for its significant accomplishments in 2015.

For the second consecutive year, Law360 has recognized Willkie among its Insurance Practice Groups of the Year.

On January 13, Law360 profiled the practice, reporting that the group has “racked up major wins in the past year.” Among the high-profile victories cited by Law360 are those on behalf of longtime client Marsh USA Inc. in a coverage dispute over $500 million in Hurricane Sandy damages, as well as for Cameron in an ongoing coverage dispute stemming from the Deepwater Horizon disaster, recently resulting in the Fifth Circuit’s affirmation of a $50+ million judgment for Cameron.

Law360 also highlights the strength of Willkie’s transactional insurance practice, noting its recent representation of HCC Insurance in its $7.5 billion sale to Tokio Marine, and of Assurant in its $975 million sale of its employee benefits business to Sun Life.

Partners Mitchell Auslander, Chair of the Insurance and Reinsurance Coverage Practice Group, and Christopher St. Jeanos are quoted throughout the profile.
