Our national insurance practice has already grown by leaps and bounds with the addition of excellent transactions lawyers. Manuel will add even more scope and depth to what we can provide our insurer clients.”

Manuel, who has been listed in The Best Lawyers in America for commercial litigation from 2021 – 2024, said:
