John McLeod specializes in the representation of policyholders in insurance coverage matters throughout the western United States. He has handled claims involving numerous types of policies and alternative insurance arrangements. He was coverage counsel for the primary subcontractor defendant in the CityCenter (Las Vegas) construction defect case (one of the largest in the country before it settled in early 2015), a general contractor in a San Diego downtown hi-rise construction defect case (damages sought in excess of $60 million), another general contractor in a San Diego commercial construction defect case (damages sought in excess of $10 million) and one of the primary subcontractor defendants in a San Diego commercial construction defect case (damages sought in excess of $40 million).
McLeod is a founding shareholder of McLeod Law Group APC, a boutique litigation and insurance law firm, which formed in 2003. Since its founding, the firm has represented a wide variety of businesses, associations and individuals, including national home builders, real estate developers throughout the western states, both national and San Diego-based general contractors, some of the largest specialty contractors in the country, homeowners associations across California and a variety of non-construction business, such as biotechnology companies. This representation has extended the gamut of first- and third-party policies, including primary, excess and umbrella liability, directors and officers, errors and omissions, contractor’s pollution, employment (EPLI), property and builder’s risk policies.
McLeod is a member of the San Diego County Bar Association. He is a co-author of Chapter 7 Insurance Considerations in Handling Construction Defect Claims: Western States, Fourth Edition, eds. Miller, et al. and has authored several articles and spoken at a number of conferences, including West Coast Casualty and MC Consultants construction seminars.
