With nearly 30 years of insurance experience, Nick Nierengarten can confidently say that he has handled the full spectrum of insurance coverage issues. He helps clients reduce their financial exposure, and protects their interests. The fast-paced, ever-evolving insurance arena makes it challenging for companies to know what is covered and what’s not, which often results in disputes. That’s when clients turn to Nick. He aims to resolve disputes, but when that doesn’t happen, he vigorously represents policyholders in coverage litigation.

Nick’s diverse background allows him to offer a much broader perspective when identifying issues and enables him to provide practical, cost-effective and timely solutions. Particularly skilled at identifying significant, but often unrecognized risks, he anticipates problems and proactively deals with them. Oftentimes, Nick orchestrates multiple parties with differing, sometimes divergent, interests (brokers, defense counsel, adversaries, etc.) toward the ultimate goal of protecting the client’s interests. Nick is savvy at analyzing complex policy provisions, which are typically laden with technical terms of art and other jargon, to decipher their meaning and create a strategic position to maximize coverage for the client. Clients say it’s a quiet comfort knowing their coverage situation has been thoroughly evaluated, all angles were considered, and they received excellent advice.

Nick has extensive experience and deep expertise helping clients with numerous types of coverage, including:

  • Commercial General Liability (CGL)
  • Directors & Officers (D&O)
  • Employment Practices Liability (EPL)
  • Fiduciary Liability
  • Commercial Property
  • Errors & Omissions (E&O)
  • Intellectual Property and Media
  • Cyber/Privacy
  • Umbrella/Excess
  • Environmental Impairment Liability (EIL)
  • Representations & Warranties (Mergers & Acquisitions)

With a proven track record, Nick represents clients in a variety of commercial disputes and regulatory proceedings.
