Areas of Expertise

Additional Expertise:



Mr. Martin's extensive insurance and legal experience uniquely positions him to be a very effective insurance consultant and expert witness. He has more than 30 years of insurance experience; initially serving as corporate counsel for two international brokers, and then as a senior insurance brokerage executive. As a lawyer, he served as chief litigation counsel, defending two of the world's largest insurance brokers from professional liability claims. Through that experience he gained extraordinary insight into the inner workings of insurance brokers and their subsidiaries, insurance companies, and the operations of their clients and customers. Early in his legal career he decided to understand insurance coverages, and broker and carrier operations, as well as or better than the clients he represented, thereby making him a much more effective lawyer, and later, a brokerage executive.

In addition to handling and overseeing hundreds of litigated cases with exposures exceeding $10 billion over a 10 year period, Mr. Martin, gained an intimate understanding of property and casualty, and life and health insurance brokerage operations, calling retail brokers, actuaries, third party claim administrators, safety engineers/ loss control specialists, risk management consultants, wholesale brokers, managing general agents, reinsurance brokers, and captive insurance companies his clients. In the course of defending those varying interests, not only did he become familiar with nearly all types of insurance coverages, but also came to understand how those coverages fit the unique needs of nearly all types of industries. As a part of his roles, he was also responsible for identifying E&O risk management issues, implementing preventative operational measures and best practices.
