Laura Foggan Named to Benchmark's 2019 'Top 250 Women in Litigation' List

Washington – August 26, 2019: Benchmark Litigation has again named Laura Foggan, partner and chair of Crowell & Moring’s Insurance/Reinsurance Group, to its “Top 250 Women in Litigation” list. The list draws from a wide range of practice areas, and features leading female litigators who recently have participated in impactful litigation matters and have earned the respect of their peers and clients.

Foggan has been recognized repeatedly by her peers as among the elite insurance lawyers in Washington and in the United States, and she is one of the industry’s leading attorneys helping insurance companies address emerging issues and maximize opportunities in the digital age. Benchmark cited Foggan’s recognized litigation work, as well as her comprehensive arbitration, mediation, and alternative dispute resolution work. She litigates complex, and often high-profile, coverage disputes, product liability, and privacy claims in state and federal courts. Her practice encompasses trial and appellate matters, as well as arbitration and mediation of significant disputes.

Foggan also counsels insurers on strategic opportunities, litigation trends, and emerging risks such as autonomous vehicles and drones, privacy and cyberliability, global warming, internet-of-things, artificial intelligence, and utilization of blockchain or distributed-ledger technology. She has significant experience representing insurer trade groups on a wide variety of issues affecting the business of insurance, and advocates for insurers in legislative and regulatory matters. Foggan has participated in more than 250 appellate cases, including key national precedents on insurance issues.

Benchmark’s research process involves months of investigation into litigators’ professional activities, client feedback surveys, and one-on-one interviews. Lawyers recognized by Benchmark were chosen through review of recent casework, how lawyers at peer firms rank them, and client feedback on their performance.
