Meet Andrea

Andrea specializes in the wind-down of run-off programs, large scale settlement projects and legacy portfolio management. Andrea works directly with reinsurers and private equity groups to quickly evaluate and actively negotiate files for immediate resolution for those clients interested in reducing shelf life, legal and indemnity expenses.

Since joining Gallo Vitucci Klar in 2016, Andrea’s carrier clients have transferred over 500 active NY labor law lawsuits from other insurance defense firms. These transfers resulted in efficient, cost effective, and favorable resolutions for both the carrier and the insured. The carriers have saved millions of dollars in both indemnity and legal expenses and over two million dollars in previously abandoned or neglected past legal fees were recovered.

Over the past 14 years, Andrea has reviewed, monitored and provided her clients with action plans for over 14,000 claims. She provides clients with a cost-effective way to manage large books of business by expanding on the traditional attorney-client relationship. She advises her clients on issues including adequate loss and expense reserves, loss analysis, cost effective litigation management and the implementation of proven resolution techniques from the inception of the claim. Andrea is also National Coordinating Counsel for Nationwide Auto, General Liability and Construction Defect Programs.

Andrea’s traditional insurance defense practice focuses on general liability matters including construction accident and defect, premises cases, hospitality, dram shop litigation, automobile defense, subrogation and property damage.

Andrea lives in Glen Rock, NJ with her husband, 3 kids and dog named Bob.
