Margo Brownell Directs First-of-Its-Kind Insurance Law Clinic

October 7, 2013

Margo Brownell, a partner in Maslon's Litigation Group, founded and directs the Insurance Law clinic at the University of Minnesota Law School. The Clinic, which is now in its second year, is the first-of-its-kind in the country, and provides student-led representation for individuals and small businesses with insurance claims and/or coverage disputes. The Clinic specializes in health, disability, life, homeowners and auto insurance claims, often representing low income individuals who need legal services on a pro bono basis. 

Margo Brownell specializes in insurance coverage counseling and litigation. She represents commercial policyholders with complex insurance claims under all types of property and liability policies, including commercial general liability, directors and officers liability, professional liability, cyber-liability, and intellectual property liability coverage. In addition, she handles complex property claims, such as those arising from major catastrophic events such as the terrorist attacks of 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina, as well as claims under financial institution bonds and commercial crime policies.

For more information on the clinics offered, go to University of Minnesota Law School Clinical Education.
