Marshall M. Redmon Partner
"The true measure of value is helping clients manage around potential problems."

When discussions of professional liability insurance issues become heated, Marshall Redmon keeps the temperature down and the tone productive. With more than 20 years of experience representing both insurers and professionals, he understands coverage disputes from every perspective and often finds solutions when others cannot. Marshall counsels clients from policy analysis to litigation and alternative dispute resolution, drawing on a vast body of knowledge to predict likely courses of action and outcomes.

Marshall approaches insurance issues holistically — he looks not only at the words of the contract but also at the business decisions that impact coverage. He also brings to bear extensive data on market trends to help clients see competitive opportunities. When disputes arise, he counsels clients on litigation strategies and participates actively in arbitrations and other alternative dispute resolution proceedings.
