Matt Pierotti, former Senior Claims Account Executive at Zurich Insurance has joined Costello Legal. The move allows the firm to broaden its litigation expertise, as well consulting capabilities in the healthcare industry. At Zurich, Mr. Pierotti acted as claims counsel on healthcare/medical malpractice claims of high complexity, with a total valuation exceeding $20 Million, involving primary and excess insurance.
Managing Partner Dan Costello extolled Pierotti’s value to the firm in recent comments “We really love to have industry executives at the firm as they truly understand our clients need. Not only does Matt bring a keen sense of the claims process, but in his prior role he worked directly with hospitals and risk managers to identify and resolve catastrophic medical malpractice claims.” Although Mr. Pierotti’s prior role was national in scope, he also had a strong concentration in major cases in Illinois and Indiana. Mr. Costello continued “Matt will bring considerably depth in experience not only in the healthcare industry but also prior experience with catastrophic trucking and construction claims, and this positions us very well to serve our clients.”
