Biography

Paul Meade focuses his practice on Insurance-Related Litigation. Paul has tried over 30 cases to verdict in state and federal courts, has handled numerous arbitration hearings, and has participated in hundreds of mediation proceedings. While the principal focus of his practice has been the defense of automobile, commercial and residential premises, and construction-related personal injury, wrongful death and property loss claims, he has also handled numerous products liability actions, fraternity liability, civil rights, municipal liability, marine/boating, and environmental coverage claims. His appellate experience includes argument before the Connecticut Supreme Court in which he successfully defended a $3,000,000 damage claim against the Town of Clinton by a developer seeking to expand a waterfront marina.

Additionally, Paul has considerable experience defending claims related to liquor liability, dram shop and social host liability. He recently obtained summary judgment in favor of a national fraternity organization in a matter involving the death of an underage individual arising out of the alleged service of alcohol by fraternity members.

Paul's reported appellate decisions include O&G Industries, Inc. v. All-Phase Enterprises, Inc., 112 Conn. App. 511; Port Clinton Associates et al., v. Board of Selectman of the Town of Clinton, 217 Conn. 588, 587 A. 2d 126, cert. denied 112 S. Ct. 64 (1991), Cusano v. Burgundy Chevrolet, Inc. 55 Conn. App. 655 (1999) and Hodgate, Admr. v. Ferraro, et al., 123 Conn. App. 443 (2010).

Paul is a member of the Connecticut and Hartford County Bar Associations, and the Connecticut Defense Lawyers Association.
