Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP
Caroline Spangenberg has 30 years of experience in representing policyholders in insurance coverage matters and related indemnity disputes. She has helped her clients recover more than a hundred million dollars in insurance proceeds through negotiation, mediation and other forms of ADR, arbitration (including international arbitrations) and litigation throughout the United States and overseas. She has handled a broad range of insurance coverage matters, including hurricane and other casualty losses, professional liability claims, asbestos, silica and other toxic tort claims, single- and multiple-site environmental claims, intellectual property, privacy, and technology (including Internet) claims under a variety of policies, including advertising injury and internet-specific policies, so-called construction defect claims, including major course-of-construction and completed operations claims, mold claims, product liability claims, errors and omissions claims, property damage and business interruption losses, as well as claims arising under a variety of specialized or manuscripted policies. Ms. Spangenberg has also had extensive experience dealing with allocation, additional insured, other insurance and priority of payments issues.
In addition to her coverage work, Ms. Spangenberg has dealt with insurance and indemnification issues in the corporate transactions context. In many instances, Ms. Spangenberg, in addition to pursuing potential insurance, has also helped her clients in minimizing or mitigating the underlying losses or liabilities that give rise to the insurance claim and in crafting a resolution of the underlying dispute in a way that maximizes the potential for insurance or indemnification from a third party. Ms. Spangenberg has also assisted some of her larger corporate clients in establishing within the law and risk management departments protocols for early identification of potential insurance.
