Insurance is the umbrella that shields corporate America when the rain falls. It’s the lubricant that keeps the wheels of business turning in the drought. It’s the plug that stops the canoe of commerce from foundering in the waves. And these 10 top-flight insurance lawyers are the steady hands who ensure the spigot opens when the dollars should be flowing � and closes when they should not. How did we find our wise counsel? We asked for nominations from readers. Freelance reporter Tania Anderson talked to a lot of industry observers on and off the record. And then we settled on the 10 outstanding attorneys profiled here. Legal Times plans three more Leading Lawyers reports for this year. They will focus on business litigators (April 9), communications attorneys (July 16), and international trade specialists (Sept. 17). Nominations are still open for the latter two. We thank you for your suggestions. To learn more about Legal Times ‘ Leading Lawyers series and to nominate, click here.
