Robert’s Chapter addresses various subjects, such as subrogating against an insured, actions impairing subrogation rights, waivers of subrogation, voluntary payment doctrine, estoppel, splitting causes of action, unclean hands, laches and invalidity of a tortfeasor’s insurance policy. The Chapter not only provides an analysis of recent case law, with citations, but also helpful hints from Robert.
Robert has been handling large loss subrogation claims since the 1993 World Trade Center terrorist attack. He stated: “I was one of the two associates assigned to investigate the damages at the Twin Towers for subrogation potential and then draft the Complaint after a theory of recovery was formulated. Since then, I have primarily handled large loss property subrogation assignments around the globe. I now lead Clausen Miller’s East Coast subrogation practice, and am the direct contact for many clients with losses across the US, and other countries. When I was asked to write the Chapter for Appleman, I welcomed the opportunity to share my knowledge with others. Judges all the way down to first year law students know how important Appleman is as a source of information. Nathalie Hackett, one of our subrogation attorneys, was an invaluable contributor to the Chapter.”
Dennis Fitzpatrick, President of Clausen Miller, stated: “Clausen Miller has been an industry leader in the subrogation practice for more than 30 years. Our specialty is large property losses, and we are proud of our international subrogation practice. Our subrogation attorneys are highly experienced in handling technical and complex cases, and consistently turn hard-hitting and innovative theories of subrogation into substantial recoveries for our clients. Robert is one of the leaders of our subrogation practice, and is at the forefront of property subrogation claims. His guidance, handling and results for our clients consistently exceed ‘industry standards.’ We are very pleased that he was invited to write the Chapter forAppleman.”
