Not many of today’s insurance lawyers say they dreamed of being an insurance lawyer. The field was not hot or sexy or cutting-edge. Most law schools in the 1970s and early 1980s didn’t even offer insurance-law classes. So they got their start because one day a partner in the firm asked them to do some research. Or they sensed the potential when asbestos cases started rising to the surface. They were lured in reluctantly, but they stayed because of the intellectual challenge. Today, they can navigate the complicated ins and outs of insurance policies � the paragraph or sentence or word that means the difference between coverage or not. The following 10 lawyers have handled some of the highest-profile insurance cases in the last 25 years, concerning everything from the Exxon Valdez oil spill and faulty breast implants to the 9/11 attacks and, of course, asbestos exposure. They counsel corporate policyholders and defend insurance companies. And whether or not the word “insurance” makes your heart beat faster, they play a key role in some of the most complex disputes of our time.
