Over his career, Tim Mickel has represented a diverse spectrum of individual and corporate clients in contract and commercial litigation, construction law, insurance law, health care litigation, products liability and tort litigation, employment law and other areas. He has represented a number of national and regional banks and financial institutions in complex special assets work, commercial litigation and lender liability matters. Tim has also represented national insurers in both Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) and contractual coverage disputes involving group disability and credit life and disability insurance policies. Tim’s experience also includes representing manufacturing clients in claims involving toxic torts and alleged exposure to asbestos and other toxic substances. He has represented these same types of clients at both the trial and appellate levels.

 

While a significant portion of his practice has been devoted to litigation, Tim’s experience and talent are much broader. He has a vast background in representing product manufacturers, including the negotiation of purchase and sale and other related agreements. He has also advised clients with respect to consumer and commercial warranty issues. He also has counseled clients in respect to construction contracts and other agreements related to site development and improvement.
