Thompson Coe is pleased to announce the addition of Partner Victor Anderson, III to the firm's Los Angeles office. As a skilled litigator with over 30 years of experience, his addition to our firm profoundly enhances our capacity to provide superior services to our clients in California. His practice focuses primarily on Insurance Litigation and Coverage and he has successfully defended clients in litigation involving bad faith, extra-contractual liability, wrongful death, negligence, unfair business practices, product liability and premises liability.
Mr. Anderson has significant trial experience, as he has been lead trial counsel in over 50 trials involving breach of contract, bad faith, misappropriation of name and likeness, defamation, premises liability, wrongful death, unfair business practices and wrongful termination, among others.
"Victor is a talented attorney with exceptional litigation skills and a tremendous ability to analyze and resolve coverage and bad faith matters. He will be of great value to our clients," said Frances O'Meara, Managing Partner of the firm's Los Angeles office.
In 2016, the Litigation Counsel of America, a diverse, peer-selected honorary society of 3,500 of the best trial lawyers, awarded Mr. Anderson the Peter Perlman Service Award in recognition for his efforts to improve the lives of others through his community service and charity work. Mr. Anderson is a Prime member of Association of Defense Trial Attorneys, which is a statement of the high regard in which he is held by his peers in the defense trial bar of Los Angeles and California. Mr. Anderson has been a member of the Federation of Defense and Corporate Counsel (FDCC) since 2006. In 2015, he was elected to the FDCC Board, holding the distinction of being the first African American Director in the organization's 75-year history. Mr. Anderson also serves on the Board of The Langston Bar Association.
