Laurie Dugoniths Busbee
I have spent my entire legal career focused on helping clients resolve insurance coverage disputes. I regularly counsel clients on a wide variety of property and casualty insurance issues under policies covering commercial property, business income and extra expense, builder's risk, inland marine and commercial general liability as well as under many different types of marine liability and property policies. Having worked in the marine industry prior to starting my legal career, I have a unique understanding of marine risks.
My practice has afforded me the opportunity to provide clients with coverage advice and/or assist with litigation in the state and federal courts of over twenty-three different states, and the Court of Appeals for the Second, Fourth, Fifth and Eleventh Circuits.
In 2012, I was voted one of Georgia's top 50 women lawyers and I have been consistently recognized as a Super Lawyer by Atlanta Magazine since 2011. I am an active member of the ABA's Insurance Coverage Litigation Committee and I frequently present on topics related to insurance coverage at their midyear meetings. I am a member of the CGL Reporter Editorial Board for IRMI, and authored "The Duty to Defend" chapter of The Reference Handbook on the Comprehensive General Liability Policy.
