Richard’s practice primarily focuses on litigation and insurance coverage, representing both insurers and insureds, in state and federal courts throughout the Southeastern United States.
Richard’s insurance coverage practice involves advising and representing domestic and international insurers regarding commercial property, commercial general liability, business liability, professional malpractice, construction defect, liquor liability, and professional errors and omissions claims.
Richard has successfully defended insurers, managing general agents, brokers, and adjusters in first-party commercial property claims, including litigation arising out of the interpretation of policy provisions and exclusions, business interruption claims, co-insurance clauses, valuation of replacement cost and actual cash value, and bad faith and extra-contractual claims. Richard also has extensive experience defending insureds in personal injury, wrongful death, construction defect, property damage, premises liability, and professional liability and malpractice claims.
In addition to his litigation practice, Richard spent four months on secondment with a leading Lloyd’s of London syndicate, advising its claims and legal teams on a wide variety of North American claims, underwriting and regulatory issues.
