Robins Kaplan LLP

William A. Webster joined Robins Kaplan LLP right out of law school in 1988 and is a partner and a leader in the Insurance and Catastrophic Loss Litigation Group. Mr. Webster’s practice focuses on commercial property and energy and engineered risks, including coverage analysis and subrogation, dispute resolution, strategic advice, and trial and arbitration work arising from all types of perils and involving a multitude of risks under all risks, named perils, and builders’ risk policies.

He has litigated in state and federal court throughout the United States as lead counsel on multi-million dollar, complex disputes. Recently a federal judge commented “you are what trial lawyers should be.”

His clients recognize Mr. Webster’s experience in energy and infrastructure industry claims involving power generation facilities, wind and solar facilities, oil and gas refining, processing, and transport, including pipelines, supply chain interruption and time element issues, underground mines, and construction defects.

He also has extensive experience with catastrophic events in production facilities, chemical plants, warehouses, office buildings, and restaurants. His years in the insurance industry handling complex claims and leading quota share cases for U.S., Lloyd’s, and London Market Insurers is reflected in his strategic savvy, his focused and practical approach to case management, and his strong skills as the leader of trial teams.

He is a frequent presenter and writer on litigation and insurance issues and is one of the firm’s two members of the Loss Executives Association. Clients also look to him to draft policies and specific policy provisions.

Mr. Webster is dedicated to providing exceptional service and common sense advice to clients and to instilling the same professionalism, responsibility and enthusiasm in younger lawyers in all practice groups.

Mr. Webster is one of the original core faculty instructors of our Exceptional Advocate Training Program, a nationally recognized training curriculum designed to develop the next generation of world class trial attorneys by providing vigorous advocacy training conducted by our most experienced partners.

He is also an instructor in the firm-wide legal writing program for new associates, and is a coach in our Business Development Program for Principals.
