Boston, MA – November 9, 2022, Morrison Mahoney partner William A. Schneider has become a fellow of the American College of Coverage Counsel (ACCC), the preeminent association who represent the interests of insurers and policyholders in disputes arising out of insurance policies.
Bill and his team focus their practice on commercial litigation and first-party insurance, with an emphasis on trial and appellate work in the state and federal courts throughout New England. He has extensive insurance experience, including policy drafting, policy interpretation, and the general representation of insurance companies in a variety of matters across several lines of coverage. He also represents insurers in arbitration, appraisal, reference, and other non-judicial proceedings required by the policy or applicable law.
Bill frequently provides advice and counsel to insurers in the investigation and adjustment of complex first-party claims that involve fraud, valuation disputes and complex coverage issues. He also serves as settlement counsel in high exposure liability cases and has a great deal of experience defending insurers in complex bad faith and extra-contractual liability claims.
The ACCC, established in 2012, is an invitation-only organization of senior lawyers who have devoted most of their practice to insurance disputes for 15 years or more. The ACCC’s Fellows include many of the most prominent members of the insurance law bars of the United States and Canada, as well as Honorary Fellows from academia and the judiciary.
The ACCC focuses on educating all sectors involved in the field of insurance law – including the judiciary, legal and insurance professionals, law students and businesses – on cutting edge, emerging, and critical issues such as developing trends in insurance law and bad faith, trial practice and alternative dispute resolution, policy formation and claims handling.
The ACCC’s mission is to advance the creative, ethical, and efficient resolution of insurance coverage and extracontractual disputes; to enhance the civility and quality of the practice of insurance law; to provide peer-reviewed scholarship; and to improve the relationships among the members of our profession.
“The ACCC is delighted to welcome Bill as the latest member to become actively involved in its work,” said Sherilyn Pastor, president of ACCC.
