Elaine Panagakos is a litigator with more than 30 years of experience. Her practice focuses on insurance and reinsurance matters.
Elaine works with insurers both to resolve coverage disputes as they arise and to apply the lessons learned from those experiences to reduce the likelihood and frequency of future disputes. She has represented and advised insurer clients in cases involving coverage for widely publicized, highly controversial allegations of misconduct by institutional policyholders, and developed expertise in the emerging areas of insurance coverage law that such matters have generated.
In addition to direct advocacy on behalf of her clients, Elaine works to further the rights and interests of the insurance industry through appellate advocacy, which encompasses both coverage cases and tort cases wherein issues of concern to insurers are presented to state supreme courts or federal courts of appeals for precedent-setting determinations.
