Methfessel & Werbel Named 2016 Insurance Law Litigation Department of the Year by the New Jersey Law Journal
The first three-time winner of this prestigious award is recognized for its excellence and impact in the fields of first party, third party and subrogation work.

Edison, N.J. – November 30, 2016 – The New Jersey Law Journal has once again named Methfessel & Werbel New Jersey’s top insurance law firm of the year. The award follows the firm’s receipt of the same award in 2015 and 2016.

“It’s an honor to receive this award for the third consecutive year. We have worked very hard for a very long time to establish ourselves at the top of insurance law firms in the state of New Jersey. Our 44 year commitment to the insurance and managed risk industries has allowed us to participate in some of the most significant developments affecting our clients and our industry,” said co-Managing Partner John Methfessel. “As the insurance industry has expanded we have responded in kind, with a growing civil rights and employment practice group and augmentation of our existing practice areas to respond to the needs of a changing industry. We’re extremely proud to be recognized for the third straight year as the premier law firm practicing insurance law in the state.”

“To be recognized a third time as the winner of this award is a tremendous accomplishment for our organization,” stated Joel Werbel, co-founder of the firm. “When Methfessel and Werbel was established in 1972 we founded it with the idea that we would create relationships with our clients in the insurance and risk industry that would serve their needs over the long term. One of the things that makes me the most proud is that we have a number of clients who have been with us for that entire period – a fact that has validated our approach.”

In the two years since first winning the award in 2015, M&W attorneys have tried over 50 cases, some of which were among the largest exposure cases tried in the state. M&W attorneys also have been counsel of record in more than 50 written opinions issued by state and federal courts. The firm continues to enjoy tremendous success not only in the performance of its seasoned veterans, but also by less-experienced attorneys who are all involved in the firm’s structured mentoring and supervision program. As a result, not only are the needs of clients met today; the firm ensures continuity of service and value by ensuring succession.

Methfessel & Werbel serves clients ranging in size from mono-line program carriers and MGAs to Fortune 500 multi-line carriers and self-insureds. It is one of the longest standing, stable firms in New Jersey. Founded in 1972, the firm has grown steadily to its present size of 58 attorneys, and was most recently noted to be the 39th largest firm in New Jersey by N.J. Biz Magazine. Yet the firm has never strayed from its core mission: to serve the needs of the insurance and managed risk industry.

“Our mantra is to deliver value to our clients every day, on every matter, and our team lives by that mission. They put our clients’ needs first every single day, and our clients have rewarded our efforts with their trust,” added co-Managing Partner Matt Werbel. “We never, ever take our clients for granted, and we work hard every day to demonstrate that by anticipating and serving their every need.”
