Insurance & Reinsurance Partner
Choate Hall & Stewart LLP
For David Attisani, authenticity is priority No. 1 when working with clients. “My highest value with clients and more generally in my professional life is authenticity,” said Attisani, an equity partner with Choate, Hall & Stewart LLP. In my view, it is also exceptionally important to proffer affirmative recommendations to clients. “I prepare for every call, every email exchange, every meeting – with my tactical and other recommendations in mind. I owe them my best advice in support of their most significant decisions.”
Having been with Choate, Hall & Stewart LLP for nearly 30 years, Attisani is a partner focused on problem-solving, shaping, and winning high-profile disputes. Favoring a personal and bespoke approach to his client groups, Attisani also provides coverage evaluations, wordings advice, and market analysis. Among the many high profile claims for which Attisani has served as lead counsel are COVID-19 BI, WC, and collateral trapping; California wildfires; NFL CTE; and Boy Scouts of America and school-related sex abuse issues.
His clients include global insurers and reinsurers Swiss Re, Munich Re, Endurance/Sompo, Chubb, Sompo, Partner Re,The Hartford, Aeolus, Symetra, and MIIA. “Although I’ve served insurers and reinsurers almost exclusively for nearly 30 years, each one is a little different. Each has its own ethos and priorities, so they sometimes approach similar issues in different ways. I never deviate from my core principles, but I do try to conform my approach to their specific needs, rather than asking them to accept my agenda”.
