Shayne W. Spencer is an Associate of the firm. His practice concentrates in insurance coverage in federal and state courts in New Jersey, New York, and several other jurisdictions. He has significant experience with several different types of coverage, including commercial general liability, umbrella and excess, professional malpractice, directors and officers, and additional insured. Mr. Spencer provides a broad array of services to his clients, including providing coverage opinions and analyses, pre-trial and trial activities, and appeals.
