Biography

Tom Curvin, co-leader of the Litigation Practice Group, defends property and casualty, life and health insurers in class action, coverage, and extra-contractual litigation in state and federal courts across the country. In recent years, Tom has defended insurance class actions involving homeowners insurance, premiums, claims practices, and coverage questions, commercial general liability coverages, automobile claims handling and coverage questions, medical payments coverages, catastrophe claims, and reinsurance, among other topics. In that capacity, Tom also has served as national coordinating counsel in mass tort litigation implicating various property and casualty insurance products. Outside the class action area, Tom represents insurers in bad faith and coverage litigation and counseling.

Tom defends national and regional law firms in professional liability matters arising out of corporate transactions, franchising, securities, trusts and estate planning, and litigation, among other practice areas. These matters range from defending against claims of professional negligence to claims of aiding and abetting alleged Ponzi schemes.

For more than 15 years, Tom also has advised automobile manufacturers on state regulatory and licensing issues and regularly defended them in federal and state court litigation, arbitrations, and administrative proceedings involving disputes with dealers, suppliers and customers. Tom's experience includes litigation stemming from add-point and relocation challenges, buy-sells, dealer candidate turn-downs, sales performance and fraud-based terminations, and reverse discrimination claims.
