Ronald Kammer Named Co-Chair of ABA Section of Litigation’s Trial Evidence Committee For 2013-14
Ronald L. Kammer, a Miami-based Partner at the national law firm of Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP and co-leader of the firm’s Specialty Litigation and Insurance Coverage Department, has been named National Co-Chair of the American Bar Association (ABA) Section of Litigation’s Trial Evidence Committee for 2013-14.
The Trial Evidence Committee is comprised of more than 1,300 individuals. It addresses evidence issues — such as expert witnesses, highly technical evidence, electronic evidence, legislation, ethics, privileges, and other issues raised under the Federal Rules of Evidence and their state counterparts — as well as national and regional developments in the law of evidence, and significant state and federal evidence cases. The committee also sponsors and co-sponsors programs at national and regional meetings and offers valuable tools for trial attorneys.
Kammer, who in addition to his role as co-leader of Hinshaw’s Specialty Litigation and Insurance Coverage Department is the Partner-in-Charge of the firm’s Miami office, is the outgoing national chair of the Section of Litigation’s Insurance Coverage Litigation Committee. He represents insurers nationally and has been involved in many significant cases that interpreted a carrier’s duty to defend and indemnify; breach of policy conditions; claims involving bad faith and unfair and deceptive trade practices; and coverage obligations for construction defect, pollution, trademark and patent infringement claims. Kammer also handles first- and third-party coverage disputes and advises insurers and policyholders on issues involving policy interpretation, claims handling practice and procedures, and the drafting of insurance policy provisions.
