Creighton K. Page


When my clients have suffered a loss or are facing a potential liability, I help them get the insurance coverage they expect and have paid for.

Creighton Page is Co-Chair of the Insurance Recovery Practice Group. His practice principally focuses on representing policyholders in lawsuits and ADR proceedings seeking recovery under various lines of property and casualty insurance, including general and umbrella liability insurance, directors and officers (D&O) liability insurance, professional liability (E&O) insurance and business property and business interruption insurance.

Creighton has won summary judgment decisions in several major insurance coverage suits and negotiated seven- and eight-figure insurance recoveries on behalf of a number of clients in various industries.  He also advises companies in the procurement and negotiation of specialized insurance policies, including representations and warranties insurance and D&O and E&O liability insurance.

He has defended accounting firms and their professionals in a variety of disputes, including accounting malpractice cases and regulatory investigations conducted by the SEC.
