Margaret Hupp Fahey
Location: Chicago, IL
Margaret Fahey is a partner at Clausen Miller P.C., where she has worked since 1986. Margaret primarily divides her practice between construction litigation and insurance coverage. Though Margaret’s experience in construction litigation has included representation of general contractors, subcontractors, manufacturers and suppliers, she has focused her practice from the beginning on representing design professionals and advising them in the unique challenges they face. As such, Margaret has not only defended architects and engineers in litigation and ADR proceedings, but provided guidance in contract formation and negotiation of construction site disputes.
In the area of insurance coverage, Margaret has litigated complex cases on behalf of insurers in jurisdictions throughout the United States. Margaret’s experience in coverage litigation encompasses a variety of lines of insurance, including all-risk, builder’s risk, boiler and machinery, CGL, environmental and errors and omissions coverage. The claimants in these coverage disputes have ranged from homeowners and small businesses to large industries, such as power plants, chemical and petroleum refineries, food processing plants, mines and mining facilities. Given this breadth of experience, Margaret has been retained to assist carriers in drafting policy forms and provide training to claims professionals.
Margaret graduated with a Bachelor of Journalism degree with high honors from the University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri in 1983 and a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Illinois College of Law in 1986.
Margaret has made presentations and written articles for a variety of organizations and publications in the insurance and construction industries. She has also put her background in journalism to use by editing and writing for Clausen Miller’s Construction Law Newsletter.
She is a member of the American and Chicago Bar Associations and the Defense Research Institute.
