Gabe litigates complex coverage disputes and counsels insurers on issues arising from commercial general liability, excess and umbrella, professional liability, miscellaneous errors and omissions, environmental and business auto policies. 

As part of his nationwide practice, Gabe has litigated long-tail claims, including issues of allocation and exhaustion, and has defended insurers against claims for extra-contractual damages in multiple jurisdictions. He has extensive experience litigating claims for additional insured coverage, as well as related issues such as priority of coverage.
