Over the past year, Dominic Nesbitt and his partner Gary Osborne on behalf of corporate insureds have obtained substantial insurance recoveries under CGL, D&O and Professional Liability policies. Most recently, in the past few months, representing a well-known music production company in Los Angeles, the firm recovered settlements from four insurers arising from an underlying copyright infringement lawsuit. Each insurer had previously disclaimed coverage. Representing a publicly-traded company in Orange County, the firm obtained a very favorable settlement with the company’s D&O insurer in connection with liability arising from a shareholder derivative lawsuit.
Nesbitt initially trained as an insurance broker at Lloyd's of London before entering law school in 1982, and has practiced law exclusively in the area of insurance coverage analysis and litigation. Prior to forming Osborne & Nesbitt LLP in 1996, he was associated with Luce, Forward, Hamilton & Scripps LLP and Adams, Duque & Hazeltine. Nesbitt's practice is devoted exclusively to the representation of policyholders in commercial insurance disputes.
