Carl J. Pernicone

Carl Pernicone is co-chair of the firm’s Insurance-Reinsurance Coverage practice. Carl has extensive experience with matters involving toxic tort and environmental liability claims, including property insurance claims. He also applies the skill set he has developed in handling complicated environmental issues to assist insurers facing claims in emerging coverage areas such as climate change and clean energy technologies.

Carl adds value to his client relationships through responsiveness and regular follow up. He takes the time to get to know the issues of interest to each of his clients – including issues not related to projects Carl is handling for them– and frequently will pass along relevant news articles, email alerts or other materials to his clients. Carl also provides regular follow up on key topics of interest to attendees of educational programs he has presented.

In addition to his legal practice, Carl manages Wilson Elser’s national attorney training program and is chair of the Associate Development Committee.
