More about Gerard

Jerry splits his time between commercial disputes and transactional work. His practice involves a significant amount of time working with insurers in the London Market as well as representing US companies in all manner of litigation and transactional issues. He handles commercial matters, subrogation files for insurers, insurance coverage disputes, personal injury suits, and a wide array of liability claims in both state and federal courts in Texas and other states, as well as before the US Supreme Court.

Jerry has advised clients on a range of matters relating to first party and third party insurance claims in both the marine and non-marine areas, focusing on all aspects of property claims, cargo claims, personal injury and trucking claims. He has spoken to numerous clients and defense groups regarding issues of coverage, bad faith claims handling, indemnity and additional insured claims.

Jerry is licensed to practice law in all the state and federal courts in Texas and before the US Supreme Court and the US 5th Circuit Court of Appeals.

We are working with clients across our international network to help them minimise the impact of COVID-19 on their business and to prepare for what's next. To find out more, visit our dedicated Covid-19 hub.


The Houston office, which opened on 3 January 2017, established the firm's first office in the USA when HFW merged with leading Texas-based energy and marine firm Legge, Farrow, Kimmitt, McGrath & Brown LLP, a firm with whom we have been successfully collaborating for several years.

This is a significant strategic development for the firm, underlining the fact that Houston is an important geographical market for HFW and its clients, being a key touchpoint for several of the firm's chosen sectors, including energy, marine and insurance in particular.
