LOS ANGELES, CA—Barnes & Thornburg has added Lilit Asadourian to the firm’s Los Angeles office as a partner in the Litigation Department, where she will practice in the firm’s nationally-recognized Insurance Recovery and Counseling group.
Asadourian focuses her practice on insurance recovery, bringing over two decades of insurance dispute and financial litigation experience in private practice and in-house with two major banks. As a litigator, Asadourian represents corporate policyholders in breach of contract and bad faith disputes, which involve first- and third-party coverage claims.
Asadourian joins on the heels of two insurance recovery partners, Kevin Dreher in Chicago and Austin Bersinger in Atlanta, in 2021. She bolsters a growing roster of talent who have secured billions of dollars of insurance recovery for policyholders, ranging from Fortune 100 companies to small, privately held businesses.
Asadourian’s insurance recovery practice involves claims that emerge under commercial general liability, fiduciary, property, errors and omissions, directors and officers, and employer liability policies. In addition to her insurance recovery experience, Asadourian represents financial institutions in matters involving residential mortgage-backed securities, loan-repurchase litigation and other complex commercial disputes.
