Ms. Hans is the managing shareholder of the firm's Philadelphia office. Her practice concentrates in the area of insurance coverage on behalf of policyholders. As a civil engineer with experience in the utility industry, she focuses on mining, energy, oil and gas, and manufacturing sectors.
With a practice that spans Canada, Finland and numerous U.S. jurisdictions, clients note that "Pam is an exceptional lawyer" and "very attentive and responsive."
Pam’s client-first approach carries through all matters that she handles, whether Fortune 500 Companies, energy and mining companies, construction companies, manufacturing companies, private schools, or religious organizations. For example, when a Canadian energy company faced an eight-figure loss, she understood the technical issues and business impact of that matter and fought for her client. When a U.S. mining operation experienced a catastrophic workplace accident, she understood not only the insurance coverage, but also the contractual requirement and worked with all parties to reach a resolution. When an educational institution faced abuse claims, she was able to guide the institution through the defense of the matter and assist in reaching a resolution of all claims. Pam always puts her clients' interests and goals at the center of every representation.
Pam is a Fellow of the American College of Coverage Counsel. She is recognized by Chambers USA for Insurance Law in Pennsylvania, The Legal 500 US for Insurance-Advice to policyholders, and Best Lawyers®.
