Firm Hires Verne Pedro to Expand Geographic Footprint and Insurance Coverage Practice
White Plains, New York – (March 9, 2020) New York-based law firm Fullerton Beck LLP has opened its first New Jersey office at 331 Newman Springs Road, Bldg.1, 4th floor, Suite 143 in Red Bank. The firm also has an office in White Plains, New York.
New Jersey insurance coverage attorney Verne Pedro, who started with the firm on March 2, 2020, is managing the office.
“Our hope was to expand to New Jersey in 2020, but we had to find the ideal attorney – an accomplished lawyer with leadership skills to manage the office and one with a practice and work ethic that complements what we’ve built,” said Katrine Beck, co-founder of Fullerton Beck. “Verne checks all the boxes. He is an established insurance coverage attorney with a winning track record. We are thrilled to have him on board to help us grow our existing relationships with insurance companies and to be on the ground in New Jersey, which our clients have been asking for since we founded the firm nearly two years ago.”
Pedro has more than 18 years of experience handling significant first- and third-party insurance coverage issues and helping clients make informed decisions about their insurance assets, policies, and risk transfer strategies. Many of his first-party matters encompass losses as a result of natural disasters, fire, computer data loss, broker negligence, declaratory judgment actions, water damage, boat damage, bad faith, and related business interruption, business income, and extra expense claims. He also has handled bankruptcy-related insurance coverage issues and cyber breaches.
Pedro represents insurance carriers and captive insurers on insurance coverage matters involving property damage, construction defects, environmental, title insurance, personal injury, additional insureds, errors and omissions, Bermuda form policies, professional liability, and others.
Pedro earned a B.A. from Rutgers University (1995) and a J.D. from Seton Hall (2001). He also earned a certificate in cybersecurity from Harvard Vice Provost for Advances in Learning. He is admitted to practice law in state and federal courts in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
