Mathias Discusses His Practice and Career with Law360

Jenner & Block Partner John H. Mathias, Jr. is featured in Law360’s “Q&A with Jenner & Block’s John Mathias.”  John responds to five questions about his career and practice area: 1. his most challenging case (representing CSX Transportation in CSX Transportation v. Admiral Insurance Company, et al); 2. an area of his practice that needs reform (the length of time it takes to get an insurance coverage case to trial); 3. an important case or issue (judicial compensation is a “near national disgrace”); 4. an attorney in his field who has impressed him (Ken Erickson of Ropes & Gray); and 5. a lesson he learned early in his career (not to blame the judge or jury for disappointing results).

John chairs the award-winning Insurance Litigation and Counseling Practice.  Chambers USA regularly rates him in “Band 1” for Insurance (Dispute Resolution) and, in 2013, named the Practice the best in the country for Insurance (Policyholder).  He is a veteran trial lawyer whose clients seek his representation in disputes related to contracts, insurance coverage, employment, class actions, professional liability and intellectual property.
