Because I drill down on every single word an insurance carrier uses, I can see angles and positions to support my client’s case that other coverage attorneys don’t see. This lends itself to more creative arguments that help me generate the most efficient and best possible outcomes for my clients.
Highly regarded for his depth of knowledge and ability to fully understand both the granular details and the big-picture perspectives of a case, Marc Ladd represents and advises large corporate policyholders across the country and around the world. Marc draws on his extensive experience handling a wide range of insurance coverage disputes in federal and state courts and other venues. These cases involve first- and third-party property/casualty; insurance broker malpractice; asbestos-related matters; traditional and non-traditional environmental property damage; product liability; D&O, E&O liability; insurance proceeds for trustees in bankruptcy; business interruption; insurer bad faith and consumer protection; contractor liability; among others.
Characterizing himself as “a counselor before a litigator,” Marc exhausts every option to achieve favorable resolutions for his clients and avoid entering into costly lawsuits. But when the situation warrants litigation, he advocates strongly and strategically on behalf of his clients, often using innovative approaches to advance their interests.
Marc brings to his practice vast experience in all phases of litigation, from coverage analysis and client counseling to pleadings, written discovery and depositions, motion practice, trial, and eventual settlement. Clients also rely on him for policy renewal advice and value his ability to scour proposed policy changes and identify issues before they arise.
In 2018, Law360 named Marc one of five “Rising Stars” nationwide in Insurance, and to Law360’s Insurance Editorial Advisory Board in both 2019 and 2020. According to a client quoted in a recent Chambers report, “Marc Ladd does a great job implementing the strategy and delivering quality work.”
