Ed Jaeger has more than 22 years of experience practicing exclusively in the area of subrogation.  Ed has litigated numerous complex commercial and residential property losses involving fire, structural collapse, water, mold, transit and maritime claims.

Ed is a frequent speaker at client oriented seminars.  Topics have included the production of company files in discovery, recognizing major obstacles to subrogation recovery, effective handling of mold related claims, apportionment of recovery between the insured and insurer, subrogating under Builder's Risk Policies, waiver of subrogation provisions, AIA contracts, and the discovery of expert testimony.

In addition to litigating and trying cases, Ed has been an author and speaker on insurance subrogation topics for publications and forums focused on subrogation which have included presentations at national conventions for the National Association of Subrogation Professionals and the Property Loss Research Bureau.

Ed is licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and the District of Columbia, but practices throughout the country utilizing the services of local counsel under a special program with the subrogation department.

Ed has successfully argued one of the few cases where a court analyzed the applicability of an AIA Waiver of Subrogation Provision to post construction losses.  The highest court in Maryland held the Waiver of Subrogation Provision in an AIA contract was ambiguous and did not preclude subrogation.  See John L. Mattingly Construction Company, Inc. v. Hartford Underwriters Insurance Company, 415 Md. 313,999 A2d. 1066 (2010)
