Laura Geiger – Counsel
Laura helps corporate policyholders with all aspects of their insurance programs. Laura has negotiated the terms of, submitted claims under, and litigated claims involving commercial general liability, directors & officers, errors & omissions, employment practices liability, commercial crime, cyber, first party property and business interruption and pollution liability policies.
