Selected Client Comments

Insurance Law

Butler Rubin’s insurance/reinsurance practice brings a diverse skill set, but all of the attorneys and paralegals we have worked with share three traits: diligence, deep industry expertise, and impeccable integrity. Butler Rubin takes a careful, thoughtful approach in helping clients evaluate issues and works with you in a consultative manner to determine the best course of action, oriented toward “business first” results. They work hard to be extraordinarily well-prepared for their cases, which makes for a relatively low-stress working environment come hearing time. Everyone we have worked with has been personable, accessible, and responsive. A very high-functioning team. I have worked closely with David Winters for several years. David has an uncommon ability to be both facile with details from disparate sources on highly nuanced issues, while remaining focused on the overarching strategy and the high-level business and legal implications.

It is a pleasure working with the staff of Butler Rubin. They are very competent when it comes to understanding the arcane world of reinsurance. I found the staff to be polite and professional and attuned the needs of the client. I always felt comfortable with them knowing that they would answer all of my questions promptly; they would explain their strategy clearly; and they would listen to any suggestion that I might have.

Butler Rubin is a top-notch dispute resolution firm for a fair price. They are experts in reinsurance disputes but also demonstrating knowledge and value in the direct insurance space, as well. Lou Aurichio is one of the best there, as he focused on not only the dispute at hand, but also the client's business needs and environment. This sets him and the firm apart from others.

Butler Rubin's reinsurance litigation and arbitration practice is truly first rate. They bring real expertise, deep experience, integrity and energy to their cases. Their trial/hearing prep is thorough, organized, and well-planned. There's no drama or "crisis mode" atmosphere, but great teamwork from the most senior partner to the most junior paralegal, and the team approach extends beyond the firm's walls to the in-house business and legal staff as well as to outside support (e.g., trial graphics). I recommend Butler Rubin without reservation.
