Michael L. Manire
Mike Manire’s practice has focused on insurance since 1993, when he joined D'Amato & Lynch. Mr. Manire has represented global D&O, E&O and professional liability insurers in connection with complex claims on policies issued both in the U.S. and abroad. He has represented insurers in coverage and bad faith litigation, but his 20 years of experience in dispute resolution and mediation has led him to a particular interest and expertise in exploring and reaching resolution. Mr. Manire has participated in settlements of both coverage and underlying liability issues in hundreds of matters, including securities fraud class actions, shareholder derivative actions, creditors’ committee and bankruptcy trustee claims, breach of fiduciary duty claims, consumer class actions, employment liability actions, bankers' and investor advisors’ liability claims, media and intellectual property claims, and a variety of other professional and management negligence claims.
Before 1993, Mr. Manire practiced in New York City primarily as a transactional and corporate lawyer. That experience informs his approach to dispute resolution, and he has continued to represent clients on business, banking, regulatory and financial matters.
