- Environmental Insurance Attorney | Anderson Kill P.C.

John G. Nevius Esq. P.E. (Deceased)

In Memoriam
New York

John G. Nevius was a senior shareholder in the New York office of Anderson Kill and Chair of the Environmental Law Group.  He successfully resolved and litigated a variety of legal and technical matters, most of which involve insurance coverage.  He obtained over $200 million in settlements and judgments from insurance companies.  He also represented numerous Fortune 500 companies and has extensive experience trying or arbitrating complex disputes, generally on behalf of policyholders, in the following areas: environmental, real estate, construction, power-generation, mining, electronics, petro-chemical, telecommunications and work-place safety.

Mr. Nevius had a broad range of legal experience, but focused on environmental insurance and risk management, including general liability, pollution legal liability (PLL), finite risk, financial assurance and so-called pollution exclusions.  Mr. Nevius was co-author with the late Eugene R. Anderson of a treatise on Brownfields Law and Practice involving clean up and redevelopment of contaminated real estate using insurance.  He was routinely retained by policyholders, developers and other lawyers to evaluate, and maximize, recovery of insurance assets.  He was also a Senior Consultant at Anderson Kill Insurance Services (AKIS), a non-legal subsidiary of the firm as well as a former Adjunct Professor of Law at Pace University where he taught Science for Environmental Lawyers and conducted a Climate-Change Insurance Seminar.
