Insurance Expert Witness

Robert M. Anderson is well versed in all aspects of property and casualty and worker’s compensation insurance, as well as management liability (D&O, etc.), and accident and health. His education includes Claremont McKenna College (Business) and the Harvard Business School multiyear program for Owner/Presidents as well as his CPCU designation. Currently, he is a member of the Tort Trial & Insurance Practice Section of the ABA and is a regular participant of the Insurance Coverage Litigation Committee. He has bolstered both his knowledge and experience in extensive insurance program developments in Property Casualty, Umbrella Liability, Worker’s Compensation and health insurance. His understanding of Risk Retention and Captives is demonstrated by the formation of six captive reinsurers domiciled in Bermuda where he also became familiar with the evolution of the Bermuda Form for complex mass tort exposures.

This type of multi-disciplinary experience has proven instrumental in understanding insurance coverage disputes that often involve numerous participant layers-mainly Reinsurers, Reinsurance Brokers, Primary insurers, Managing General Agencies, Wholesale Distributors, Claims Handlers and Retail Agent-Brokers. Determining where “Customs and Practices” were not honored requires an understanding of the separate standards of each participant layer and how they overlap and intertwine.

During his brokerage tenor, he oversaw Managing General Agencies (MGAs) with five major P&C carriers, and was the owner of a Managing General Agency in Boston himself specializing in alternative occupational accident coverage and medical stop loss, further enhancing his underwriting credentials.

In addition, Robert M. Anderson held 18 board positions, including regional NASDAQ underwriters, as well as co-founding five technology startups in the insurance space.
