It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of our dear friend and colleague, Elizabeth Sherwin.
Liz joined McKool Smith in 2016 after practicing for many years at Kasowitz Benson Torres LLP, Dickstein Shapiro LLP, and Anderson Kill, P.C. The mainstay of her practice has always been complex insurance recovery litigation.
Recognized as a New York Metro Super Lawyer for the last nine years and a "Local Litigation Star" by Benchmark Litigation, Elizabeth A. Sherwin focused her practice on the representation of policyholders in all types of insurance coverage litigation, including comprehensive liability insurance, products liability coverage, and first-party property coverage. Liz represented her clients—Fortune 500 firms, small privately owned companies, and individuals—in state and federal courts throughout the country, as well as in numerous arbitration proceedings. Liz successfully tried several insurance coverage cases to verdict and represented clients in numerous successful appeals involving issues of first impression defining the rights of policyholders. Liz also obtained substantial settlements for clients/policyholders in insurance coverage disputes.
