Henry Weber’s practice primarily focuses on bad faith litigation, insurance defense, professional liability, coverage, premises liability and personal injury defense. In recent years, Henry has represented different Lloyd’s syndicates in numerous residential and commercial hurricane/bad faith claims. In 2023, he participated in an eight-week secondment at Brit Underwriting Syndicate at Lloyd’s of London at their office in London. During that time, he trained with the property binders claims team and underwriters and gained considerable experience in the Lloyd’s Market.

Henry started his career as a plaintiff’s attorney, and it is this experience, coupled with later client representation in governmental entity defense, maritime law, health care compliance, and class action defense, that gives Henry a broad perspective to serve his clients.

When not at work, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Christina. Presently, Henry sits on the boards of Jewish Children’s Regional Service and Ahavas Sholem Cemetery and is fluent in several languages including Spanish, French, German, Italian, and Modern Hebrew.
