Practice Areas

Internationally known for his successful litigation and arbitration strategies and execution, Adam Ziffer represents policyholders in actions for damages and declaratory relief and counsels clients on a range of insurance-related issues. Adam litigates some of the most cutting-edge, precedent-setting insurance coverage cases in trial and appellate courts nationwide. They include privacy liability, employee dishonesty, first-party, errors and omissions, directors and officers, product liability, asbestos, environmental, and employment coverage matters. In his global practice, Adam represents clients in arbitrations in London, Bermuda, and other international venues.

Some of Adam’s notable work includes securing a landmark decision for Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association of America in an insurance coverage lawsuit, where the court found that a civil settlement of a lawsuit involving claims for disgorgement was an insurable loss under New York law and granted summary judgment to TIAA. He first-chaired the subsequent jury trial, obtaining a $50 million verdict, and then successfully argued the appeal in the Delaware Supreme Court. Adam also led the representation of Medidata Solutions Inc. in securing a first-of-its-kind summary judgment ruling from the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York regarding insurance coverage for cyber-theft losses.
