Alex Purvis is a partner in the Litigation Practice Group, and a significant portion of his practice relates to insurance coverage as a member of the Policyholder Insurance Coverage team. Alex has worked on complex first- and third-party coverage disputes since law school, and he has been recognized in this area by Super Lawyers magazine since 2010. His experience allows him to assist clients with the new and complex insurance issues arising in the data privacy and data breach arenas. Most companies face data breach claims without any cyber liability insurance, but they may have access to coverage under their traditional insurance portfolio.
As a Fellow in the American College of Coverage Counsel (ACCC), Alex frequently assists commercial policyholders in evaluating and pursuing their claims, using established rules and tools that apply equally to data breach coverage. He takes pride in working closely with the client to identify goals early in the process and execute an action plan that gets results in an efficient manner. Because of his in-depth experience with the insurance industry, Alex understands all perspectives in the dispute and is well-equipped to identify creative solutions beyond litigation. At the same time, Alex is a trial litigator with experience in all stages of litigation and can pursue coverage rights in court when necessary.
