“After two decades at Philadelphia-based Marshall Dennehey Warner Coleman & Goggin, where he was a member of firm leadership, insurance coverage shareholder Eric Fitzgerald is taking his practice to another go-to firm for clients in the insurance sector, Goldberg Segalla,” The Legal Intelligencer writes.
Eric A. Fitzgerald—now a Philadelphia-based partner at Goldberg Segalla and a leader of the firm’s Global Insurance Services practice—spoke with the publication about his transition. He said that his clients were attracted to the firm’s national platform.
“Eric is one of the most spectacular coverage lawyers that I’ve ever interacted with,” Rick said. “He fits the specific profile of the people we look to bring into this firm.” Noting Eric’s extensive relationships throughout the insurance industry, Rick noted that Eric’s move was “not about whether he can make us more money, but about whether he can make us better.”
“Eric is a leader in the insurance industry [and] a leader in the legal industry,” David added. “He’s going to be a leader in our firm, and a leader with our clients going forward.”
While at Marshall Dennehey in Philadelphia, Eric served as a senior vice president on the firm’s board of directors, chaired its insurance coverage practice, and was deputy director of its professional liability practice. He also served as risk manager.
