Jason Morris represents property and casualty insurers in litigation, mediation, and arbitration across the country. He counsels carriers on issues regarding claims practices and procedures, focusing on maximizing his clients’ business interests and often helping them avoid litigation in the first place.
When litigation becomes necessary, Jason draws on his experience handling bad faith and coverage claims, disputes between insurers, and defending the financial services industry from consumer class actions, primarily in federal court. Jason routinely serves as defense counsel for insureds on behalf of insurers, using his industry knowledge to advance the interests of both carriers and insureds through efficient and timely claims resolution.
In addition, Jason advises insurers with respect to coverage disputes concerning representation and warranty, professional liability, cybersecurity, directors and officers, employment practices liability, aviation, media, fidelity, fiduciary liability, securities, medical liability, and intellectual property insurance policies.
In the RWI context, Jason has experience spearheading efforts to disqualify party-appointed arbitrators as biased against insurers and undermining claimants’ overstated damages calculations, which are often based on an enterprise valuation multiple that has no bearing on the merger or acquisition purchase price pre-negotiated by the buyer and seller.
Jason also handles complex civil litigation, class actions, and disputes for clients in the financial services, life insurance, annuity, entertainment, and real estate industries. His substantial national experience includes matters governed by the law of California, Illinois, New York, Minnesota, Washington, D.C., Florida, Georgia, and more than 20 other states.
His matters have covered a variety of substantive areas, such as RICO, ERISA, deceptive trade practices, unfair competition laws (UCL), fraud, financial elder abuse, breach of contract, bad faith, breach of fiduciary duty, and issues arising from market conduct examinations and other regulatory proceedings.
