By on September 11, 2018 in Announcements

John Hardin has joined Perkins Coie’s Insurance Recovery practice as a partner in the Dallas office. He is joined by Skyler Howton, an associate in the Insurance Recovery practice.

The firm said Hardin handles complex commercial litigation and has experience in resolving complex insurance recovery disputes for corporate policyholders. He advises clients on topics including policy language, claim submission and growing areas of conflict, such as cyber liability.

“John has an impressive depth of knowledge and experience in complex litigation, particularly related to insurance coverage in Texas,” said Robert Jacobs, Firmwide Chair of Perkins Coie’s Insurance Recovery practice. “The state has been an active jurisdiction for these kinds of cases for some time now, and as we continue to help clients navigate related concerns, John’s background will make him an invaluable asset to our team.”

Hardin’s litigation work also extends into real estate litigation, where he advises clients on matters ranging from traditional disputes to cross-jurisdictional litigation in administrative, arbitration and courtroom settings. He joins Perkins Coie from K&L Gates, where he led the firm’s Global Real Estate Litigation Group.

“We’ve watched the Dallas economy continue to grow, and we anticipate complex client queries will only increase in tandem with it,” said Bobby Majumder, Managing Partner of Perkins Coie’s Dallas office. “John has a proven track record as an exceptional litigator, and since real estate and insurance issues tend to impact nearly every industry, his background will immediately enhance our cross-practice capabilities in Dallas.”

Hardin received his J.D., magna cum laude, from the University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law, and his B.S., cum laude, from Middle Tennessee State University.
