Mr. Voses has devoted his entire legal career to advising insurers and reinsurers in large exposure, complex claims and coverage matters arising from various product lines, including Directors & Officers, Financial Lines, and Errors & Omissions. He also advises insurers on extra contractual issues and represents insurers in claims alleging bad faith as well as in matters arising out of insurers' commercial operations. Prior to joining Nelson Levine, he was a partner in the New York office of Edwards Wildman Palmer LLP.
