John Darda counsels clients in complex litigation matters relating to construction law, product liability, and insurance law. He especially enjoys representing policyholders, from individuals to large corporations, while working to secure the insurance coverage they deserve in a variety of contexts.
Following a catastrophic fire loss, John represented a corporate policyholder through an appraisal process in order to recover all of the proceeds owed from its insurer. He also secured defense coverage for a multi-national construction corporation after its insurer initially denied coverage. In 2018, John was recognized as an Attorney of the Year as part of a team of lawyers who helped obtain the largest settlement by a diocese in bankruptcy to date in the U.S. for coverage work related to Archdiocese and Parish clergy abuse claims.
John is a cum laude graduate of the University of St. Thomas School of Law in Minneapolis, Minnesota and earned his bachelor's degrees in journalism and communication studies with distinction from the University of Iowa in Iowa City, Iowa.
