Lynndon Groff represents major insurers in complex coverage, bad faith, and insurance contract disputes. His practice encompasses a variety of insurance claims, including matters involving environmental pollution and long-term exposure to hazardous substances, personal injury and property damage in numerous states. He regularly deals with issues such as trigger of coverage, application of policy exclusions, timely notice, duty to defend, allocation of coverage among multiple insurers and between covered and non-covered damages and choice-of-law.

Lynndon, who has handled both first- and third-party cases since he graduated law school, has a broad range of insurance experience. Before joining White and Williams, he litigated several high-exposure environmental liability matters with a top international law firm in New York. He has also represented policyholders in numerous underlying liability cases involving disputes ranging from construction defects to motor vehicle accidents. He has dealt with all aspects of insurance litigation, from pre-suit analyses to appellate arguments and everything in between.

Lynndon graduated magna cum laude from Boston College Law School, where he was a moot court semi-finalist and served as an Articles Editor on the Boston College Law Review. When not handling insurance matters, Lynndon assists homeowners, pro bono, in obtaining clear title to their properties through the Philadelphia VIP “Tangled Title” program.
