Adam Budesheim represents corporate policyholder clients from diverse industries in complex coverage litigation under a broad array of policies, including general liability, pollution legal liability, professional liability, directors and officers, and many others.
Trusted by clients to handle their most difficult and critical insurance disputes, Adam is often called upon to resolve long-tail liability cases – particularly challenging policyholder claims as they often involve coverage for litigation in which plaintiffs are claiming injuries arising from decades’ old occurrences that span multiple policy years and carriers. His well-established track record of achieving exceptional recoveries for clients in these disputes was recently illustrated in significant trial court and appellate victories that secured well over $200 million in coverage for the subsidiary of a Fortune 500 client facing thousands of underlying lawsuits alleging its equipment caused plaintiffs’ long-term exposure to airborne asbestos dust.
Adam also leverages his litigation experience proactively to help clients assess their current programs, alert them to emerging liability risks and lay the groundwork for maximizing future insurance recoveries.
Prior to joining the firm, Adam clerked for the Honorable William H. Pryor Jr. on the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Birmingham, Alabama.
