Robinson+Cole Expands New York Office with Eight Member Financial Lines Team

November 3, 2020

Robinson+Cole has expanded its New York office with the addition of two partners, John F. McCarrick and Erica J. Kerstein, as well as two counsel, Phyllis A. Ingram and Sedgwick M. Jeanite, and four associates, Meryl E. Breeden, Joseph A. Finelli, Dmitriy Gelfand and Andrew G. Lipton. The team previously practiced at White and Williams LLP.

The group has a national practice that concentrates on the financial lines sector of the insurance industry, which includes directors and officers liability (D&O), errors and omissions, and representation and warranty insurance.

McCarrick has focused his practice on the management and resolution of complex, multi-party financial lines disputes for more than 30 years.

Kerstein focuses her practice on the litigation of complex insurance coverage matters, with a particular emphasis in D&O and other financial lines products, as well as coverage disputes under commercial general liability and first-party property insurance policies.

In 2019, the firm added a national bankruptcy practice in Wilmington, Del., Philadelphia, Penn., and New York, N.Y., led by Natalie D. Ramsey, a member of the Board of Regents of the American College of Bankruptcy. Earlier this year, the firm announced the addition of Matthew P. Mazzola, a New York partner in the Managed Care + Employee Benefit Litigation Group, as well as Frederick E. Hedberg, a Hartford partner in the construction practice.

The firm previously added one counsel and ten associates during 2020, and this week will be adding an additional six-member 2020 Fall Associate Class.
