Jordan S. Stanzler has over twenty five years of experience in the preparation and trial of complex civil cases. Since 1988 he has specialized in representing corporations in complex defense and insurance coverage cases. He has successfully obtained hundreds of millions of dollars in insurance reimbursement for companies in the construction and manufacturing industries.

Mr. Stanzler graduated from Harvard University in 1967, from the University of Chicago Law School in 1972, and from New York University (L.L.M. Taxation) in 1987. He is admitted to practice law in California, Rhode Island and New York.

He was lead trial counsel for Hoechst Celanese in a case involving excess insurance coverage for polybutylene plumbing claims, which exceeded $1 billion. The trial-- which the National Law Journal listed as one of the twenty most significant cases of 1997-- lasted three months and resulted in a unanimous verdict for Celanese on all issues.

This year he successfully obtained a defense for the James Jones Company in a lawsuit brought by hundreds of municipalities under the False Claims Act, for parts supplied to municipal water systems in Southern California.
