Matt Schroeder represents major insurance companies in connection with significant exposure claims that pose extreme risk of loss to the company. He and his close-knit team not only advise insurance companies on the policy coverage issues and disputes at hand, but also on preventive measures to avoid similar disputes and mitigate risks in the future. Matt’s practice is primarily focused on coverage issues related to environmental risk policies, but his experience includes counseling insurance companies on a wide variety of insurance policies and risks, including commercial general liability, workers compensation and reinsurance.

A unique aspect of Matt’s practice is the pursuit of subrogation recoveries under CERCLA on insurance companies’ behalves, seeking redress from other potentially responsible parties who may have caused or otherwise contributed to the environmental contamination. Some of his recent subrogation lawsuits have included claims against the U.S. government for its role in contaminating munitions sites.

Having a truly national practice, Matt and his team are in state and federal courts from New York and New Jersey through the Midwest to California. The team also handles international and U.S. arbitrations.

Matt is known by his clients as highly responsive, as well as committed to understanding their individual needs to ensure that he and his team deliver top-quality results.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
