Joe has worked on multiple long-tail environmental and asbestos cases where allocation of damages has been a major issue in the litigation. He has also worked on multiple municipality coverage cases including those that have alleged torture and abuse against the City of Chicago and Cook County related to interrogation techniques in the 1980s and early 1990s. In addition, he has worked on Bermuda Form coverage claims and the associated arbitrations under such policies. In particular, his Bermuda Form work has focused on policies issued to major pharmaceutical companies – one of which resulted in Joe participating in a three week arbitration in London in 2013.
