Insurance Litigation and Appeals
Gig Economy Insurance
First and Third Party Cyber Claims
Christina Roberto serves as national counsel for insurer clients, advising on complex coverage issues. She handles numerous high risk and complicated coverage matters across a spectrum of insurance products, including D&O, E&O, CGL, pollution liability, and multimedia liability policies.
Christina has worked on matters involving opioid coverage and drafting policy language for cutting edge gig economy insurance.
Christina led an effort to achieve a $10 million summary judgment win on an issue of first impression on the joint venture exclusion, in the matter of Reno Contracting v. Crum & Forster.
