Complex Insurance Coverage Defense – High Praise for Associate Kyle McGee From the V.P. of Claims from a Client/Carrier

“Gentlemen, I write to convey my thanks and appreciation to Kyle McGee of the Pittsburgh office. We were entangled in a complicated casualty case in USDC for the Northern District of West Virginia. The case was on the verge of trial. There were multiple coverage actions pending… We received a call from our defense counsel in the underlying liability case that the Judge was expecting a company representative with full authority to appear in court the following day for a mandatory settlement conference – (The Next Day). It was not acceptable to the Court to simply have defense counsel attend. The examiner handling the file, had previously been ordered to attend a mediation in Connecticut the same day, and thus was unavailable. Our coverage counsel was unavailable as well. (Our) Examiner then suggested that Kyle attend to represent the company. He did so very ably and then wrote a very thorough, yet concise summary of the proceedings, which were Ordered to continue… since the case did not settle… Kyle returned…and the matter finally settled. Kyle did an excellent job assisting defense counsel with the negotiators and was able to get the case settled for less than the settlement authority than he was given. Kudos to Kyle for a job well done.”
