With significant experience across multiple lines, Dana focuses his practice on matters involving commercial general liability, commercial auto, errors and omissions, directors and officers, employment practices liability, and excess/umbrella policies.

Dana’s litigation practice includes representing insurers in declaratory judgment and bad faith actions throughout the Midwest, primarily in lllinois and Missouri. He handles all phases of coverage litigation, from the initial pleadings and discovery through dispositive motions and trial.

His philosophy on litigation is a simple one: to vigorously represent his clients in the most effective and efficient means possible. While there will always be cases in which litigation is required, Dana also recognizes that sometimes the best resolutions are the ones reached outside the courtroom. His commitment to obtaining exceptional results for his insurer clients is what drives Dana’s open communication style, ensuring every client stays well-informed throughout the litigation process.

ln addition to litigating cases, Dana advises clients on their coverage obligations and potential exposure for first-party and third-party claims. He also provides coverage assistance for clients in prelitigation settlement conferences and mediations.

Dana’s commitment to the insurance industry is unwavering, extending far beyond the courtroom. For example, for the past several years, he has served as a member of the lnsurance lndustry Charitable Foundation (IICF) Associate Board of Directors, Midwest Division. The llCF is a national organization committed to helping communities and enriches lives by combining the collective strengths of the insurance industry to provide grants, volunteer service, and leadership.
