Adam Goodman

Partner

Bio

Adam puts his 25 years of legal experience to work representing businesses of all sizes and individuals in commercial litigation, real estate litigation and bankruptcy matters. He has extensive experience trying cases before both judges and juries and managing large-scale litigation.

Adam’s past and present clients include many of the world’s leading insurance carriers, brokers, and financial institutions, including AIG, Aioi, AXA, Chubb, CAN, Gallagher, ING, numerous Lloyds syndicates, Marsh, Munich Re and Swiss Re. However, he doesn’t limit his representation to large companies.

As a founding partner in a small, expertise-based firm, Adam has the flexibility to work with clients of any size. He values client relationships and makes accessibility and responsiveness a high priority.

Before founding Goodman Tovrov Hardy & Johnson LLC, Adam worked with leading law firms, including the Chicago office of the firm now known as Hogan Lovells and the since-dissolved Peterson & Ross.
