Erik's practice is primarily in the areas of General Liability, Construction, and Auto. Prior to joining Arthur Chapman, Erik worked with many of the nation's top insurers in defending a wide variety of actions on both CGL and auto policies, as well as prosecuting subrogation matters. Outside of his insurance practice, Erik also provides cost-effective advise to businesses on non-litigated matters. Erik's clients appreciate his advice on helping to prevent lawsuits from arising, but also ensuring his clients are prepared if litigation does happen.
