Gabriel Le Chevallier represents businesses, executives, bankruptcy trusts, and individuals to obtain coverage for their losses. He has secured coverage for clients under a wide variety of insurance policies, including commercial general liability, recall, errors and omissions, directors and officers, and crime theft policies.

Gabriel focuses on developing and implementing creative strategies and arguments to further his clients’ negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and litigation efforts. Gabriel also assists companies with placing their insurance, helping his clients to understand which insurance policies will better protect them in the event of catastrophic loss.

Since starting the practice of law, Gabriel has discovered that he loves Excel. This interest in quantitative analysis has led to Gabriel building spreadsheets to help understand the actual dollar impact of various issues. And Gabriel has worked closely with consultants to assess the impact of hundreds of millions of dollars in past and future liabilities on his clients’ insurance portfolios.

Gabriel was born and raised in Oregon, leaving for nearly a decade to study and practice law in Washington, D.C. He is very happy to be back home.
