We are pleased to announce that Christine Davis, an attorney on our Policyholder Insurance Coverage team in Washington, D.C., was recently selected to serve a three-year term as a member of the General Council of the Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section (TIPS) of the American Bar Association, beginning in August 2019. The General Council is the section’s governing body, which oversees the work of the section to maintain its prominence in relevant fields and provide invaluable benefits to its members.
Election to the General Council is a competitive process that can only be attained after years of hard work and proven commitment to the section. Christine’s election to the council is recognition by her peers of her contributions to the section and the legal profession to date.
Christine has been an active member of TIPS since she was selected as a TIPS Fellow over a decade ago. During that time, she served in various leadership roles, including as chair of the Business Litigation Committee. In her tenure as chair, the Business Litigation Committee was selected for the Award of Excellence, which is given to the top-performing committee of roughly 35 working committees. Christine is also vice chair of various other committees, including the Insurance Coverage Litigation Committee and the Women Trial Lawyers Committee.
Christine is currently editor-in-chief of the Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Law Journal, the section’s premier law journal, which presents scholarly articles on timely and pertinent tort and insurance issues. She is also the current executive editor of TortSource, another of the section’s publications that presents readers with timely information on legal developments in the tort and insurance fields. Christine is herself a frequent contributor of articles on insurance coverage issues.
With nearly 20 years of experience in the insurance coverage field, Christine has advised corporate policyholders in all stages of coverage disputes, ranging from informal negotiation, formal mediation and arbitration, to litigation and appeal. She also has considerable experience in claims handling issues and insurance placement. Christine can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
