McGuireWoods Atlanta partner Tony Tatum has been named a “Distinguished Leader” in The Daily Report’s 2022 Georgia Legal Awards, which recognize members of the Georgia legal community who achieved impressive results in 2021.

Tatum, co-chair of McGuireWoods’ insurance coverage and recovery team, has represented clients in recovering almost $3.5 billion in insurance assets as a result of litigation and pre-litigation resolutions, including over $1 billion in recoveries since 2019. His domestic and cross-border disputes practice includes noteworthy court rulings, awards and verdicts against domestic and international insurers, including London- and Bermuda-based insurers and syndicates.

“I am honored to be included in this group of distinguished lawyers,” said Tatum. “I am grateful for the support of my McGuireWoods colleagues across several offices, and especially our outstanding team in the Atlanta office.”

McGuireWoods has a long history of representing corporate policyholder clients in structuring best-in-class insurance programs and policies and maximizing their insurance recoveries. The firm’s insurance coverage and recovery team represents companies across industries, including energy and utility, financial services, private equity, pharmaceutical and healthcare, manufacturing, food and beverage, retail and real estate. McGuireWoods was one of only six firms to earn the powerhouse rating for commercial litigation in “BTI Litigation Outlook 2022.”

“Tony has been an invaluable asset to the Atlanta office and to the firm,” said Chris Greene, managing partner of McGuireWoods’ Atlanta office. “This is a well-deserved accolade that speaks volumes about his leadership and experience.”

The Georgia Legal Awards will be presented at a June 23 gala in Atlanta. Honorees will be featured in an upcoming special section published by The Daily Report, an American Lawyer Media publication.
