Kimberly Forrester advises U.S. and London insurers on complex and high-exposure coverage disputes and claims involving private company and not-for-profit management liability policies. Kimberly has experience in both domestic and international claims under directors’ and officers’, employment practices, professional liability, fiduciary liability, commercial crime/fidelity, and general liability policies involving government investigations, statutory violations such as the False Claims Act and Fair Credit Reporting Act, and other common law claims.
In light of COVID-19, Kimberly has also expanded her practice to advise and represent insurers on key coverage issues related to employment practices and management liability claims arising from the pandemic, including issues of workplace safety and staffing changes.
Kimberly provides litigation monitoring and dispute resolution services, and she represents insurers at mediation and settlement conferences in both state and federal court litigation. Kimberly's ability to recall and analyze the smallest details while never losing sight of the broader picture, enables her to develop and execute strategies that achieve the best possible results for her clients.
Earlier in her career, Kimberly served as a judicial extern to the president of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in The Hague. She was also involved in her law school’s California Asylum Representation Clinic, where she worked as a volunteer and mentor, advocating on behalf of asylum-seekers.
