Joanne successfully has resolved declaratory judgment actions on behalf of Rivkin Radler’s insurer clients through motion practice and appeals on issues of late notice, additional insured coverage, trigger of coverage, New York Insurance Law §3420(d), and priority of coverage.

Joanne has spoken at seminars sponsored by the CPCU Society and also speaks before national insurance companies.
In 2019, the well-respected Legal 500 recommended Rivkin Radler’s Insurance Coverage practice in the insurance: advice to insurers category. The Insurance Coverage Practice Group since 2016 has been included in the Chambers USA directory in the Insurance: Dispute Resolution: Insurer category.
