Eileen has extensive experience representing insurers in high-exposure, complex insurance coverage disputes arising under various liability policies. She has litigated many “long-tail” environmental and asbestos insurance coverage matters. In that capacity, she has served as lead litigation and trial counsel in several significant matters. She has also argued summary judgment motions in various state and federal trial courts and has acted as lead appellate counsel. Eileen served as national coordinating counsel for a major insurer’s sexual abuse claims. She is often called upon to develop and implement a resolution strategy in difficult, multi-party actions and has consistently achieved highly favorable settlements for her clients.
Eileen regularly counsels clients with respect to underlying claims involving complex insurance coverage issues, including the nature and extent of the duty to defend; “targeted tender”; trigger of coverage; allocation; potential bad faith claims; responding to settlement demands; policyholder and other insurer insolvencies; late notice; and breach of cooperation.
