Philadelphia, PA – February 15, 2024 – Post & Schell, P.C. is pleased to announce that attorneys Steven J. Schildt and Anthony L. Miscioscia have been appointed as Co-Chairs of the firm’s Insurance Law Department. They succeed former Department Chair John “Jack” Sullivan, who continues with the Department as a Principal.

“On behalf of the entire firm, I would like to thank Jack for his many years of leadership and service as Chair,” said A.

Mr. Schildt is a nationally recognized insurance/ERISA practitioner and has devoted his entire legal career to representing insurers in coverage, ERISA, and bad faith matters. His national and broad-based coverage litigation and coverage opinion practice encompasses personal and commercial insurance claims and disputes in almost all areas, including disability claims, ERISA claims, bad faith claims, life/accidental death claims, CGL claims (including additional insured and construction defect disputes), property insurance claims, COVID business interruption claims, health insurance claims, commercial auto claims, policy rescission/policyholder fraud, professional liability claims, D&O claims, long-term care claims, and all types of casualty claims. Further, Mr. Schildt has extensive experience with the business side of insurance and routinely defends agents, brokers, and producers against business tort claims and errors/omissions claims (negligence, misrepresentation, etc.).  

With nearly 30 years of experience representing and defending large, multi-line insurance carriers and smaller, regional insurance companies, Mr. Miscioscia provides counsel on complex and emerging issues under both first-party and third-party insurance policies. He handles coverage and litigation matters including construction defect; environmental liability and toxic tort; premises liability; advertising injury/intellectual property; first-party property and business interruption; homeowner’s; auto; legal, accounting, and other professional liability; educator's legal liability; employment discrimination (EPLI); employee benefits coverage (EBL); directors and officers (D&O); and bad faith claims.
