About The Speakers

David P. Hersh’s practice is focused on complex commercial matters involving contract disputes, breach of fiduciary duty, ownership disputes, construction matters, and “bet your company” litigation. Admitted to practice before both the Colorado and Wyoming Supreme Courts, as well as numerous federal courts, Hersh has tried more than 135 civil jury trials to verdict throughout the country. In addition, he’s served as lead counsel in a substantial number of complex commercial litigation cases as well as a number of catastrophic personal injury cases, including cases involving claims for brain injury, paraplegia/quadriplegia, severe burns and disfigurement, and limb loss.

Tom W. Henderson’s practice is dedicated to representing policyholders in suing insurance companies for bad faith and getting insurance companies to pay what their policies promise to pay. Henderson spent the first 20 years of his practice representing the insurance companies, answering their questions about whether the policy provided coverage for various claims, and even defending them when they were sued. Tom uses this unusual background to his clients’ advantage because he knows where the weak spots are, where the smoking guns are hidden and how best to structure his clients’ cases to maximize the potential of getting the insurance companies to pay.
