Kimberly Connick defends litigation matters across a diverse range of industries, including small, national and international companies in state and federal court. Her experience includes handling complex premises liability, labor law, products liability, motor vehicle accident, toxic tort, environmental contamination, health care and nursing home liability, medical malpractice, defective roadway design, directors and officers liability, and general liability matters. 

Kimberly’s diverse experience has contributed to her ability to evaluate claims and implement effective resolution strategies. While her practice focuses on effectively managing the entire litigation process, she understands the value of quick and cost-effective solutions to complex and potentially protracted cases, and does her best to accelerate turnaround through procedural dismissals, substantive dismissals, successful tenders and negotiated settlements. 

Kimberly is a well-regarded thought leader in the national legal community who has spoken and published on a variety of subjects for DRI: The Voice of the Defense Bar and the Claims and Litigation Management (CLM) Alliance. Among Kimberly’s subjects of note are Handling Legionella Litigation; Issues Facing In-House Counsel; Cybersecurity Litigation; Social Media Marketing for Attorneys; Attorney-Management Best Practices; and Mentoring. She is co-author of the CLM’s New York State Claims Handling Guide for the Claims and Litigation Management Alliance (2013).
