Gordon & Rees San Francisco partner Matthew S. Foy will present at the Defense Research Institute’s Insurance Coverage and Practice Symposium, to be held Dec. 4-5 at the New York Marriott Marquis.
At his Dec. 4 presentation titled “The Future of the Privacy Offense: Coverage B and Beyond,” Foy will discuss Coverage B issues under the “right of privacy” offense in the context of emerging class action privacy lawsuits alleging data breach, unauthorized collection of consumer data, next generation TCPA claims, and the like.
Foy serves as vice chair of DRI’s Insurance Law Committee and is the co-national practice group leader for Gordon & Rees’s property and casualty insurance practice as well as the practice group leader of the San Francisco insurance group. He has more than 15 years of experience representing national insurers at the claims stage, in trial and on appeal. Foy’s practice focuses on insurance coverage and bad-faith litigation and advice involving primary and excess liability policies with an emphasis on complex personal and advertising injury, cyber-liability, environmental, asbestos, other mass torts, and construction defect matters. He also handles all aspects of insurance cases involving professional liability insurance, inland marine, first-party property, and life, health, and disability matters. He assists clients with drafting policy language and claims manuals and provides in-house client seminars on coverage and claims handling issues.
Foy is a frequent speaker on issues confronting the insurance industry and he recently contributed a chapter in DRI’s 2014 “Coverage B: Personal and Advertising Injury Compendium.”
