Nossaman Expands Insurance Counseling & Recovery Group, DC Office with Addition of Prominent Insurance Duo – Andrew Reidy and Joseph Saka
Washington, DC – We are pleased to announce Andrew Reidy and Joseph Saka have joined the Insurance Counseling & Recovery Group in Nossaman’s Washington, DC office. Andrew and Joseph join as partners, and Andrew will serve as co-chair of the Group. They join from Lowenstein Sandler.
Andrew and Joseph's practice focuses on representing corporate and governmental policyholders throughout the country in disputes against insurance companies in connection with a wide variety of insurance policies, including directors and officers (D&O), commercial general liability, property, errors and omissions, crime and fidelity policies. Their clients, including Fortune 100 corporations and governmental entities, rely on their in-depth knowledge of insurance law and of insurance claims resolution. Their practice includes a broad spectrum of legal services, from counseling companies on how to maximize an insurance recovery to representing policyholders in mediation, arbitration, litigation and trial in state and federal courts.
Over the course of 30 years representing policyholders, Andrew has successfully tried insurance cases and argued complex insurance issues before numerous courts, including the highest courts of Massachusetts, Iowa and Delaware. He is ranked by Chambers & Partners – both nationally and in DC – in the Insurance: Dispute Resolution: Policyholder category and has been recognized by Best Lawyers in the Insurance Law section. He holds a J.D. from the George Washington University Law School and a B.A. from Boston College.
With nearly 15 years of experience, Joseph has been recognized as a “Super Lawyer” (2023) and “Rising Star” (2017-2022) by Super Lawyers and as “Up and Coming” by Chambers & Partners in Washington, DC for the Insurance: Dispute Resolution: Policyholder category. He holds a J.D. from the Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law and a B.A. from George Washington University.
“Adding Andrew and Joseph to the Group creates another dimension for our practice. Their backgrounds enable us to expand our offerings to clients as well as grow the practice regionally and nationally,” said Jennifer Meeker, co-chair of Nossaman’s Insurance Counseling & Recovery Group. “Their in-depth knowledge of insurance law and vast experience in litigating cases on behalf of policyholders nationally will serve Nossaman well. I look forward to working with them.”
“Andrew and Joseph joining is a great win for the firm,” added David Graeler, Nossaman’s managing partner. “They are national leaders in the insurance field for policyholders, and the perfect lawyers to expand the reach of Nossaman’s practice. This also builds on the momentum we’ve established in the DC office in terms of deepening our litigation bench there – Peggy Bennett, who focuses on white collar criminal defense, joined the Corporate Group in May and Wayne Helge, who focuses on patent litigation, joined the Intellectual Property Group in April.”
Commenting on joining Nossaman, Andrew said, “I am very excited by this move. I can’t wait to begin working with such a fantastic team of lawyers and growing the insurance practice in the DC region and nationally." Joseph added that he was “extremely impressed by the quality of lawyers at Nossaman” and “looks forward to helping clients navigate the insurance challenges they face and strengthening Nossaman’s established insurance recovery practice.”
