Nancy Marr brings a national perspective to her ERISA and insurance litigation practice.  Serving as in-house counsel for a Fortune 500 insurance company on the East Coast, she handled cases across several circuits.  She previously practiced with a boutique litigation firm in Los Angeles.  Her current focus is in litigation involving life, health and disability coverage, ERISA fiduciary liability, annuity contracts, and bad faith actions.

While in law school, Nancy was a judicial extern for Hon. Dickran Tevrizian, United States District Court, Central District of California, and a note and comment editor for the Loyola of Los Angeles International and Comparative Law Journal. 

Words of wisdom from a senior partner before a first court appearance, “Remember who your client is and know your way to the courthouse.”
