John Gibbons is a partner and Vice Chair of Blank Rome’s policyholder-only insurance recovery practice. His national practice focuses on advising corporate policyholders about their insurance policy rights and recovery insurance assets, either through negotiation or trial.
John maintains a particularly active trial practice that includes serving as trial counsel for a Fortune 100 pharmaceutical company in a four-month trial, a Fortune 500 regulated utility in two separate multiweek jury trials, and a large multinational engineering services corporation in a multiweek jury trial involving more than $250 million of insurance.
In the past decade, John has, through negotiations, litigation, and trial verdicts, enforced clients’ rights to more than one billion dollars’ worth of insurance. Recently, he has focused his attention on emerging areas of interest for policyholders, including risks attendant to international business operations, trade credit/credit risk insurance, assertions of various forms of liability for business conduct, and product liability and environmental liability issues.
