Anne M. Mohan, Counsel in Riker Danzig’s Insurance Group, brings to her cases a level of dedication and professionalism that is appreciated by her clients and respected by her adversaries. In one recent case, an adverse party commented to her, “Your client is very fortunate to have someone like you representing their interests – and you can quote me on that!”
Her practice includes the representation of insurance companies as well as the defense of their insureds in a wide range of disputes, with a particular focus on complex litigation, especially products liability, toxic tort and construction defect claims.
Anne regularly represents domestic and foreign Fortune 100 insurers and others in complex cases nationwide involving primary, umbrella and excess policies. She has represented insurers in matters involving all lines of coverage including first-party property, commercial and general liability, automobile, multi-peril and life insurance policies. In addition, she has provided coverage advice to insurers on many different types of claims, including environmental contamination and remediation, asbestos bodily injury, lead abatement, products liability, completed operations and contractors’ liability.
