David Suchar Authors Article on Insurance Coverage for COVID-19 Commercial Losses for Engineering News-Record

February 5, 2021

David Suchar, partner and chair of Maslon's Construction & Real Estate Litigation Group, has authored an article for the Engineering News-Record titled "Insurance May Cover Commercial Losses." In the article, David discusses a variety of construction industry COVID-19 impacts that may be recoverable by way of insurance—contrary to the popular misconception that commercial losses caused by COVID-10 are not insured.

David, a skilled trial attorney, regularly represents clients in construction and insurance coverage disputes, government and internal investigations, and a variety of commercial litigation. In the 2019 & 2020 Who's Who Legal worldwide rankings of construction law "Future Leaders," David was one of three ranked practitioners from the United States, described as "an impressive trial lawyer whose practice spans the spectrum of construction matters from insurance to payment claims." The 2020 Chambers USA rankings published client commentary describing David as "an excellent attorney who comes up with creative ways of resolving complicated disputes while getting things accomplished that other attorneys could not manage to do," and noting his "strengths are in mastery of insurance, understanding the construction industry, exceptional writing skills and aggressive negotiation."

David has developed a niche national practice representing commercial policyholders in insurance coverage disputes, including on many of the largest construction projects and claims across the United States. Recent matters include the LaGuardia Airport Central Terminal Reconstruction Project (NYC); Las Vegas Raiders (Allegiant) Stadium Project; Second Avenue Subway Project (NYC); claims on Millennium Tower, Transbay Transit Center and Salesforce Tower (San Francisco); the Florida International University bridge collapse (Miami); and the NSA's Utah Data Center Project.

David's in-court experience sets him apart from the crowd. He has acted as first-chair trial counsel for a variety of bench and jury trials in courts across the country. In addition to his work in the areas of construction and insurance coverage litigation and government and internal investigations, David has successfully litigated various high-end contract and commercial litigation matters.

Before joining Maslon, David served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney at the U.S. Department of Justice and successfully represented the United States as lead counsel in hundreds of contested hearings, several trials in federal district court, and oral arguments in the United States Court of Appeals.
