Gilbert LLP announced today that Jason Rubinstein, a firm partner, has co-authored a chapter in the American Bar Association’s recently released book, Mass Torts in the United Sates: Strategy and Practice.
The chapter, entitled “The Role of Insurance in Mass Tort Litigation,” was co-authored by Rubinstein and former colleagues Barry Buchman and Tamra Ferguson. It explores defense counsel’s critical role regarding insurance issues in the mass tort context, the major coverage issues that insurers often raise in response to notice of mass tort claims and why mass tort defendants often should push back on those defenses, and addresses how insurance considerations affect defense counsel’s and their client’s relationship with insurers, brokers, co-defendants, and plaintiffs.
Rubinstein’s practice at Gilbert focuses on complex insurance coverage litigation and consultation. He has experience with various lines of insurance, including general liability, environmental, property, directors and officers liability, errors and omissions, product recall, contaminated products, and automobile liability.
