Integrity and AdvocacyDuring an Era of Change
We take pride in our commitment to integrity, in helping clients in unfortunate situations and in the chances we have to change the law for the better. When we force insurance companies to pay for the coverage they have promised our clients, or when we obtain a significant monetary damages on behalf of an injured victim, it makes our role worthwhile.
Today’s legal arena is in a time of transition, and our clients seek a firm willing to stand up for them and help them through the ever-changing court system. We understand the past, we are actively engaged in the present and we are anticipating the future.

- Complex insurance coverage litigation resulting in billions of dollars in recoveries from insurance companies to pay claims
- Objecting to nonconsensual releases of liability of third parties to claimants in mass tort bankruptcies
- Advocating for the creation of subclasses (in class actions) and absolute priorities (in bankruptcies) to ensure fair treatment for similarly situated claimants

Attorney John Faricy
John Faricy is a nationally recognized complex insurance recovery and business litigator who seeks justice for his clients. John and his firm have extensive experience in large cases including the recovery of billions of dollars of insurance assets.
A New York Federal District Court Judge appointed him a Subclass Representative in the epic Johns-Manville class action finding that “Mr. Faricy has skillfully and tenaciously asserted [his clients’] interests throughout this litigation.” In that case he obtained the 10 million dollar “war chest” that he parlayed into a multi-billion dollar insurance recovery.
Most recently, Mr. Faricy’s landmark asbestos bankruptcy appeal decided Jan. 18, 1988, in the Johns-Manville toxic tort bankruptcy/class action suit, was referenced in Dec. 2021 by Judge Colleen McMahon in the Purdue Pharma case. Published case details for both are linked below. Judge McMahon referenced Mr. Faricy’s appeal because he has fought this battle before with ultimate success. Moreover, the Purdue Pharma decision vindicates our long-held position opposing improper nonconsensual third party releases.
Mr. Faricy represents individual and corporate policyholders in obtaining disputed insurance coverage.
