Antony Burt

Schiff Hardin LLP

A commercial litigator for more than 30 years, Tony handles highly visible and complex lawsuits, including those against a former Illinois governor, a U.S. congressman, a city mayor, and the son of a sitting U.S. president.

His insurance coverage claims are equally recognizable and have involved a sitting U.S. President and reinsurance obligations arising out of the destruction of the World Trade Center. He currently serves as co-leader of the firm’sLitigation and Dispute Resolution Group.

Tony has tried and arbitrated cases throughout the country and represents financial institutions in lender liability, commercial disputes, fidelity bonds and closing protection letter claims. While working on these cases, he focuses on solving his client’s problems, not making a name for himself in the courtroom. Often that means avoiding or ending litigation through a creative resolution to achieve a client’s goals efficiently.

Tony’s extensive experience also includes civil investigations to identify and recover losses on fraud, employee dishonesty or misconduct, and professional malpractice. His main objective in these situations is to find a quick and cost-effective resolution that is most conducive to a company’s business operations. He frequently coordinates with criminal enforcement and regulatory agencies to maximize the recovery for companies victimized by fraud.

Tony also has substantial experience with reinsurance arbitration and litigation on behalf of both reinsurers and cedants. His reinsurance experience includes disputes over:

  • Personal accident
  • Marine
  • Individual disability insurance
  • Workers’ compensation carve out
  • Warranty claims handling
