Nossaman fondly remembers our partner, Michael Wrenn, who passed away on June 3, 2018.

Michael Wrenn was an experienced litigator who had represented some of the world’s largest companies in groundbreaking and complex litigation. Mr. Wrenn's practice was focused on complex commercial litigation, insurance recovery, and environmental litigation. He was nationally recognized in the field of insurance recovery, representing insureds in coverage litigation and general business litigation in state and federal courts throughout the country.

Mr. Wrenn represented both local and national companies, evaluating and litigating business cases and insurance coverage issues. His clients included companies in the truck manufacturing, chemical distribution, wood treating, cement manufacturing, well drilling, waste hauling, landfill, and newspaper industries, as well as consumer goods companies, and municipalities. He had been lead counsel in more than 20 multimillion dollar lawsuits that sought coverage for environmental, business interruption, and construction defect claims against insurance companies. Mr. Wrenn also had defended numerous class action and business tort cases.

Mr. Wrenn was a frequent speaker on the subject of business litigation and insurance coverage law for various organizations, including The American Bar Association, Risk Management Insurance Society, and many Continuing Legal Education providers. He was also a trained mediator with experience helping parties reach agreements to business disputes outside the formal litigation process.
