Robert J. Romero

Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP
San Francisco, CA, USA

Robert J. Romero is a trial lawyer emphasizing insurance coverage disputes, professional liability suits, and complex commercial matters. He has first chaired numerous jury and bench trials throughout California, and has litigated significant matters in Arizona, Oregon, Nevada and Hawaii. He has also served as appellant counsel in a number of reported decisions.

Mr. Romero also acts as counsel to several Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP clients, providing counsel nationwide in high exposure cases, which present issues in first and third party coverage, professional liability coverage, and cases frequently involving catastrophic loss, extra-contractual, and punitive damage exposure.

Mr. Romero continues to devote a considerable portion of his practice to the defense of lawyers, insurance and financial brokers, real estate and design professionals. That work, which involves a disciplined approached to the “case within a case” has led to cases in the commercial litigation arena, notably to defense at trial and arbitration on behalf of Fortune 50 clients of the firm.

Moreover, his known skill as a trial lawyer has led to several clients to retain him in catastrophic bodily injury and product liability claims that are unable to be resolved short of trial.

Mr. Romero is the Partner-in-Charge of the San Francisco office, and serves on Hinshaw's seven member Management Committee, the firm’s principle governing body.
