“…in the end, there is nothing like the satisfaction of trying a case that many have said can’t be won.”
Todd Denenberg is a partner out of our Michigan office and has been practicing law since 1988. He specializes in first-party insurance, complex subrogation, and general civil litigation. Mr. Denenberg has litigated and tried numerous multi-million dollar property insurance coverage and subrogation matters both domestically and internationally. He is responsible for subrogation and coverage cases involving such natural and man-made disasters as hurricanes, earthquakes, explosions, wildfires, and land slides.
In 2009, Mr. Denenberg was one of several attorneys to help insurers win a $1 Billion settlement following the 2007 California wildfires. Representing an insurer in Louisiana’s largest-ever product-liability suit, Mr. Denenberg won his client a share in a $69 million verdict. He received a multi-million-dollar verdict against one of the largest bulk material handling companies in the world. Mr. Denenberg also received one of the largest plaintiff verdicts in a subrogation case in Oakland County, and a no-cause verdict in an arson case involving a prominent Genesee County resident.
“I try to live my life outside of work under the motto, ‘Life is short and there are no do-overs.’ I enjoy cooking, sharing a good bottle of wine with friends and family, boating in the summer, and working out at the gym for stress-relief. I also love the outdoors. From hunting in the mountains to fishing in Alaska to skiing with my children, as long as I’m outside, I’ll find something to do.”
