Harvey Nosowitz quoted in Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly Article, “Reservation of Rights Cements Asbestos Insurers’ Right to Control Defense”

Harvey Nosowitz, a lawyer in the firm’s insurance practice, was quoted in Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly article “Reservation of Rights Cements Asbestos Insurers’ Right to Control Defense,” on November 21, 2018.  Harvey commented on the recent Superior Court decision, Crosby Valve, LLC, et al. v. OneBeacon America Insurance Company, et al., where he agreed with Judge Sanders’ “finding that the insurers’ refusal to limit settlement of long-tail claims to their pro rata share did not constitute an attempt to secure an improper concession.  An insurer’s right to settle for whatever it deems appropriate and then chase other insurers for contribution is an issue of defense strategy the insurer is entitled to decide for itself, he said, calling Pentair’s argument that that created a conflict of interest “a pretty big stretch.””

Harvey’s practice includes representing clients in insurance disputes involving professional liability, employment practices, environmental, construction defects, property, and other coverage areas.
