Glenn D. Curving believes that many legal disputes are better solved by practical means than by standard litigation tactics. As an example, he offers his involvement in a case stemming from a tragedy in which Glenn was retained to represent a parent who had been sued for allegedly failing to supervise and control the actions of her son.
Typically, lawyers instruct their clients not to say anything publicly in such controversial matters. But when the client told Glenn of her heartfelt remorse over what had happened, he decided that it would be appropriate in this instance to issue a press release expressing her regret and sorrow. Later, after Glenn's client was voluntarily dismissed from the case, opposing counsel told Glenn that the apology had played a large part in their clients' decision not to pursue the case against his client. It was a good example, he says, of his philosophy: "I try to come up with practical and cost-effective approaches rather than taking the knee-jerk, by-the-book means of litigating a case."
A good share of Glenn's practical practice is focused on complex, controversial, or novel insurance litigation, including coverage work and extra-contractual claims. The bulk of Glenn's work is general litigation, with a strong emphasis on insurance coverage, insurance defense and commercial disputes. He is also well-known for his expertise in professional-liability litigation and resolving disputes between partners and shareholders.
