National Media Cover Arrival of Atlanta Insurance Coverage Partners

February 26, 2021

American Lawyer Media’s Daily Report and Reuters Legal were among the publications covering McGuireWoods’ addition of three accomplished insurance recovery partners to its Atlanta office. The coverage followed McGuireWoods’ Feb. 16, 2021, announcement that Anthony (Tony) P. Tatum, Shelby S. Guilbert Jr. and Joseph M. Englert had joined the firm, bringing collective experience advising financial institutions, energy companies and healthcare providers in insurance coverage litigation and related complex commercial disputes.

In the Daily Report’s Feb. 17, 2021, story, Tatum said McGuireWoods offers a platform from which the team may “pursue all lines of coverage and, importantly, all insurance companies.” That includes representing “clients across all major lines of commercial insurance,” such as “general liability; cyberliability; property damage and business interruption; directors and officers liability; errors and omissions; political risk and trade credit,” the publication noted. The story also pointed out that the firm’s top industry groups, including financial institutions, healthcare, energy and midmarket private equity, align with the partners’ policyholder clients.

Reuters Legal’s Feb. 16, 2021, story noted the team’s ability to assist clients in recovering pandemic-related losses, as well as in cross-border litigation, insurance matters stemming from data privacy issues and other high-stakes matters.

News of the partners’ arrival also was covered by insurance industry media, including American Lawyer Media’s PropertyCasualty 360°, Insurance News Net, Insurance Daily News, Claims Journal and Insurance Edge.
