Senior Counsel Andrew Adler has diverse and sophisticated litigation experience. Andrew complements his creative and forceful advocacy and informs his sound, practical counsel with the perspectives he gained as a transactional lawyer and the quantitative skills he developed through his education in the physical sciences.

Andrew’s practice primarily involves attorney, accountant, insurance broker, physician, and other professional liability matters; national insurance coverage suits; and intellectual property actions. He has written numerous coverage opinions and defended policyholders in tort cases, and he also continues to help businesses and individuals in all aspects of general commercial litigation.

After graduating from Harvard College and earning his law degree cum laude from the University of Michigan Law School, Andrew went on to earn advanced degrees in law and literature from New York University. He later served as a law clerk to Judge Whitman Knapp of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.
