He was also elected to Best of the Best USA (2009-2014) in Insurance & Reinsurance, which recognizes only 30 US industry professionals. In 2016, he was one of only 5 US insurance and reinsurance attorneys to be named “Most Highly Regarded” in the 13th annual edition of Who’s Who Legal: Insurance & Reinsurance. He was also elected to the World’s Leading Insurance and Reinsurance Lawyers (2006-2017) and is listed in Best Lawyers in America for Insurance Law (2012-2017) and as a Massachusetts Super Lawyer.
