Lynda A. Bennett

Partner & Chair of the Insurance Recovery Group
Lowenstein Sandler, LLP

Corporate policyholders rely on Lynda to aggressively litigate, negotiate, and resolve complicated disputes with insurers. To date, she has secured hundreds of millions of dollars in insurance recoveries for her clients. 

With more than 20 years of commercial litigation experience, Lynda understands that it is generally not in the best interests of corporate policyholders to engage in protracted and costly litigation, especially when doing so may disrupt business and lead to unwelcome public attention. Her goal is to assess and resolve disputes in a manner that achieves successful outcomes for her clients while minimizing interruptions to business as usual. However, if litigation becomes necessary, she has a keen sense of strategy and will exert maximum leverage to resolve claims as quickly as possible.

Lynda has obtained significant recoveries for clients in environmental, asbestos, construction defect, mass tort, product liability, D&O, and professional liability cases. She also counsels clients with respect to contractual insurance requirements, new insurance products (such as cyber insurance), innovative risk management tools, and insurance program assessment. Working with the firm's transactional lawyers, Lynda regularly advises strategic acquirers and private equity funds regarding insurance coverage issues that arise in acquisition and investment transactions.

Lynda has chaired the Insurance Recovery group since 2011 and is a member of the firm's Executive Board and Compensation Committee. She previously served on the firm's Operating Committee and Recruiting Committee, and she is currently actively engaged in growing the firm's Washington, D.C., office through the expansion of the Insurance Recovery group in Washington.

Lynda is strongly committed to advancing the role of women in the legal profession. She is a founder of the firm's Women's Initiative, is active in legal industry women's groups, and serves as a board member and past president of the New Jersey Women Lawyers Association. She is also an active participant in a firmwide initiative to help junior attorneys develop their networking, business development, and branding skills.
