For the second consecutive year Chambers USA, the annual guidebook to the best lawyers and law firms in the U.S., has recognized Goldberg Segalla as a “Noted Firm” among the preeminent practices in the Insurance category for Pennsylvania. In addition, Michael A. Hamilton, a partner in the Philadelphia office and leader of the firm’s Global Insurance Services practice in Pennsylvania, is a “Ranked Lawyer” in the guide. Mike, a former chair of the Insurance and Reinsurance Committee of the International Association of Defense Counsel (IADC) and a Fellow of the American College of Coverage and Extracontractual Counsel, was also recognized this year by Best Lawyers in America for his national prominence in insurance law.
In a year filled with engagements for many of the nation’s largest insurers, the Philadelphia team, also led by partner Michael S. Saltzman, achieved several prominent successes in high-stakes matters involving extra-contractual coverage, bad faith claims, potential class actions, and other complicated issues, venued in Pennsylvania and around the country. Additionally, this past year, the Pennsylvania Insurance team added partner Jeremy G. Dongilli, a former in-house counsel at one of the world’s leading insurance companies, whose responsibilities included handling insurance coverage matters and advising on asbestos and toxic tort defense cases; as well as associate Hillary N. Ladov.
The 2018 Chambers guide also ranked Goldberg Segalla’s Commercial Litigation Practice Group for Upstate New York.
