Adams and Reese

Chris D’Amour defends insurance companies and commercial entities in casualty, coverage, bad faith, property, cargo and transportation, products liability, class action, multidistrict litigation, commercial, construction, E&O and professional liability litigation, handling matters out of every office in the firm’s footprint. A significant part of his practice stems from the large London insurance market.

Instrumental in growing the firm’s insurance practice in the post-Katrina era, Chris has tried many jury and judge trials, often serving as lead counsel. Chris was the lead attorney in an eight-day, multimillion-dollar bad faith jury trial where the jury rejected all four counts of bad faith against his insurance client. A jury recently returned a zero verdict in his client’s favor in a matter that involved transportation and cargo. He litigates and mediates matters relating to several industries, including construction, entertainment, insurance, real estate and manufacturing.
