Professor Mayerson practices with the law firm, Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP, in Washington. Throughout his career in private practice, Professor Mayerson has focused on complex insurance matters, especially representing policyholders in litigation and arbitration seeking recovery under property-casualty insurance policies (such as policies covering general liability, product liability, directors/officers liability, fiduciary liability, and property damage, including business interruption and other losses from natural disasters). He serves as an arbitrator for the American Arbitration Association and for the DC Bar. He has written widely on insurance issues, including insurance company bad faith, insurance for contaminated and genetically modified foods, pre-trial and trial management of complex insurance cases, environmental-liability insurance, insurance for cybercrime and for ecommerce, the history of liability insurance in the US, and settlement of complex insurance disputes. He has taught insurance law also at The George Washington University Law School. After graduating from Harvard Law School, where he had been a member of the Harvard Law Review and a teaching fellow at Harvard College, Professor Mayerson served as a law clerk for the Honorable Stephen R. Reinhardt, US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
