Chad Bickerton Joins Kaufman Dolowich & Voluck as Insurance Coverage Partner in Ft. Lauderdale
(April 5, 2021, Ft. Lauderdale, FL) — Kaufman Dolowich & Voluck LLP (KDV), announced that Chad Bickerton has joined the firm as an insurance coverage litigation partner in Ft. Lauderdale.
Bickerton is the second insurance coverage partner to join KDV in Florida in the past three months.
Bickerton represents clients in all phases of first and third-party insurance coverage, construction defect litigation and bad faith, general liability and directors and officers liability matters. He has drafted coverage opinion letters involving complex coverage issues from 18 different states and has successfully briefed insurance coverage matters before Florida’s Second District Court of Appeals.
“It is our goal to expand the firm’s hallmark national insurance coverage practice in Florida with the highest quality practitioners in the state,” said Bruce S. Liebman, co-managing partner of KDV’s Florida offices. “The addition of Chad and Brett Smith this past December, two partners with vast experience in complex insurance coverage, goes a long way to supporting our clients in Florida and nationally.”
“I have known Brett [Smith] for many years and his endorsement of KDV, the quality of its lawyers and the great firm culture, played a key role in my decision to join the firm,” said Bickerton. “KDV’s established insurance coverage practice enables me to not only hit the ground running with current clients but grow my own practice and provide additional bench strength to the firm’s existing practice.”
Bickerton earned his J.D. from the University of Florida Levin College Law and his B.A. from New College of Florida. He serves on the New College of Florida Alumni Association Board of Directors.
