Nicholas R. Maxwell

Cohen Ziffer Frenchman & McKenna LLP, Counsel

New York, New York

Clients dealing with the fallout from a new loss do not need the added stress of navigating insurance issues. They need someone in their corner to handle all aspects of the insurance recovery process so that they can focus on getting their organization back on track. My objective in every matter is to be that person. I genuinely enjoy managing the trajectory of a dispute from day one, mastering the intricacies of the insurance program, and methodically dismantling the insurer’s position. Nick Maxwell guides policyholders in recovering the proceeds they deserve from their insurers. He has helped clients recover hundreds of millions of dollars under many lines of insurance, including directors and officers, property/business interruption, errors and omissions, and general liability policies. Any kind of business can find itself in an insurance coverage dispute, and Nick relishes the challenge of becoming conversant in his clients’ many different industries. Drawing on his experience analyzing hundreds of insurance policies and deposing dozens of adjusters, underwriters, engineers, and other insurance industry professionals, Nick quickly identifies the salient issues in any dispute and proactively addresses them. His detail-oriented approach ensures that nothing slips through the cracks, and his willingness to play devil’s advocate helps him anticipate adversaries’ arguments. He always asks clients the right questions and listens closely to the answers. Nick genuinely enjoys the craft of practicing law and values his relationships with clients, colleagues, and opposing counsel alike. He has been recognized by Super Lawyers as a Rising Star for Insurance Coverage since 2015 and was named to the Insurance Coverage Litigation Center’s editorial advisory board since 2020.
