Marc Moller is a trial and appellate lawyer who has been a partner in the law firm of Kreindler & Kreindler LLP for more than thirty years. For most of his professional career he has represented plaintiffs in commercial aviation accident, mass disaster and other wrongful death and personal injury cases and won awards for them either through trial or settlement, many of which set records for recoveries in the jurisdiction in which the actions were filed.
Mr. Moller is a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, has been appointed Lead Counsel or Chairman of the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committees in numerous mass disaster cases and served as Special Trial Counsel.
Mr. Moller’s extensive aviation litigation experience has led to awards and settlements in cases involving virtually every type of commercial and general aviation aircraft, corporate jet and charter aircraft, helicopters and military aircraft in operation today.
His services also have been sought as a consultant to counsel in litigation brought outside of the United States when the United States jurisdiction requirements cannot be satisfied.
Mr. Moller was the Plaintiffs’ Liaison Counsel in tort litigation in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York arising from the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
By virtue of his involvement in 9/11-related litigation and other terrorist attacks on aircraft he has gained a unique perspective into the legal and practical issues the threat of terrorism presents to the aviation industry.
Through the resolution of 9/11 wrongful death claims and other disaster cases, Mr. Moller has developed practical insight into the litigation and settlement of multi-party claims and the creation of “special funds” and how to distribute “settlement” proceeds.
Mr. Moller is a frequent lecturer in the United States and abroad and has authored numerous articles on matters relating to aviation and product liability issues, discovery and trial preparation, trial techniques, aviation safety, air traffic controller liability, as well as litigation and settlement strategies, generally and professional ethics.
He has served as the Chairman of the Aviation and Space Law Committee of the Tort and Insurance Practice Section of the American Bar Association, as well as the Aviation Committee of the New York State Bar Association, and has held a broad range of leadership positions in many organizations devoted to law, civic and charitable pursuits.
