Kate Margolis knows insurance coverage is essential to the long-term viability of any business, from a small business or hometown bank to an international hotel chain or Fortune 500 manufacturer. The stress of being hit with a class action lawsuit or natural disaster is compounded when insurance coverage is in question. That’s why Kate is committed to cost-effective strategies to prevent potential coverage issues if possible, creative solutions to achieve a satisfactory business resolution when a coverage question arises, and unrelenting advocacy for the client when litigation is warranted.
Kate has assisted clients with disputes involving a wide variety of commercial insurance policies, including property and business interruption, auto, boiler and machinery, crime, cyber, commercial general liability, directors and officers, employment, errors and omissions, marine, pollution and professional liability. She is a team player who enjoys learning about the client’s business and addressing the client’s concerns whether before or after an insurance claim is made.
Kate has handled numerous types of litigation throughout her career, including pro bono post-conviction capital defense. She has served as president of the Mississippi Chapter of the Federal Bar Association, on the board of the Capital Area Bar Association, and as a member of the Mississippi Bar’s committees on ethics and professionalism.
