Leech Tishman Fuscaldo & Lampl LLC has hired Michael H. Sampson as a partner in the Litigation Practice Group. Sampson will also serve as chair of the firm’s Insurance Coverage Group as well as co-chair of the Cannabis Group.
He is based in Leech Tishman’s Pittsburgh office, where he will represent diverse clients in a variety of complex civil and commercial litigation.
Sampson focuses his insurance coverage practice on assisting policyholders across various industries to address and resolve complicated insurance coverage matters relating to commercial general liability policies, property insurance, management liability coverages and other types of insurance, such as cyber liability, hull and marine liability, specie insurance and pollution liability insurance. A significant portion of his practice is dedicated to litigating coverage claims against insurance companies and/or third-party claims administrators.
He also regularly advises U.S. and international cannabis-related businesses, as well as ancillary businesses servicing the U.S. cannabis industry. He frequently helps clients in the state-compliant medical and adult-use cannabis markets, as well as the CBD and hemp markets, comply with U.S. federal law, understand the potential for aiding-and-abetting liability, navigate the conflict between federal and state laws, adhere to applicable state regulations and protect their contractual rights. Additionally, Sampson routinely assists cannabis dispensaries, REITs and other cannabis-related businesses with various insurance coverage and risk management matters.
In addition, Sampson has experience working with and representing Old Order Amish families across the U.S. In that regard, he has advised Amish individuals denied U.S. permanent resident status due to their religious beliefs and has litigated against, and negotiated with, the U.S. government to resolve these disputes.
