The Florida Legal Awards 2023 Names Hinshaw Partner Ronald L. Kammer a Finalist in the Lifetime Achievement Category
The law firm of Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP is very pleased to announce that partner Ronald L. Kammer has been selected as a finalist in the Lifetime Achievement Category of the 2023 Florida Legal Awards by the Daily Business Review.
Kammer has represented insurers in Florida for 35 years. In 1987, he was tapped by Hinshaw to head its expansion into Florida. Under his leadership, the firm’s presence in Florida grew to more than 80 lawyers.
Since 1988, Kammer has helped shape Florida’s insurance law. He has well over 250 reported decisions in both federal and state courts involving insurance, as well as bad faith matters. He has argued cases before the Florida Supreme Court, the First and Eleventh Circuit Courts of Appeals, and the Florida Court of Appeals. He is regularly retained based on his expertise to serve as an expert witness in insurance coverage, bad faith and attorney fee dispute matters.
During his long career, Kammer served as lead counsel for insurance clients in several MDL actions including Chinese drywall, which was estimated to affect 20,000 homes, including many homes in Florida. In that case his efforts ultimately enabled many Floridians to repair their homes. Kammer was also one of the lead lawyers for the insurers in the collapse of the FIU bridge and parking garage. Last year, he was one of the lead insurer-side lawyers instrumental in the coverage settlement following the 2021 collapse of Champlain Towers in Surfside.
He is the past National Co-Chair of the ABA’s Insurance Coverage Litigation Committee, a Fellow of the America College of Coverage Counsel, and Chambers rated in the area of insurance law.
Category winners will be announced in a Florida Legal Awards ceremony on Wednesday, May 17, 2023 at the Marriot Marquis in downtown Miami.
