Speaker: Steven Badger with Zelle, LLP from Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas

CE Course Topic: Insurance and Public Policy Issues Arising From The 911 Terrorist Attack


CE Course Description:  Referred to by many as the “best CE class they have ever attended”, this fascinating presentation tells the story of the multi-billion dollar subrogation actions against airlines, aviation security companies, and foreign governments alleged to be responsible for the 9/11 Terrorist Attack. The presentation provides an insider’s look into the events leading up to the attack and the complex first-party property insurance issues that arose after the attack.  The presentation is of particular interest to insurance professionals who appreciate the important role played by the insurance industry in history-shaping catastrophic events.


Steven Badger with Zelle, LLP from Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas

For over 30 years, Steven Badger has represented the first-property property insurance industry in major catastrophe risk exposures.  His work has included matters arising from numerous hurricanes, floods, explosions, COVID, and the 911 Terrorist Attack.  For eight years Badger served on the Plaintiffs Executive Committee leading the multi-billion dollar subrogation action brought by insurers of the World Trade Center Complex arising from the 911 Terrorist Attack. Today, Badger’s practice is devoted entirely to representing the insurance industry in responding to the significant increase in disputed claims after hailstorms and wind events.  This work includes responding to the dramatic increase in fraud and other abuses occurring in these matters.  Badger is well-known and respected as a fierce advocate for his insurance company clients and the entirety of the first-party property insurance industry.
