Manire & Galla LLP is a new law firm, founded in 2015 by Michael Manire and Deeanna Galla. Mr. Manire and Ms. Galla have over 35 years of experience between them at D’Amato & Lynch, LLP in New York City, primarily representing D&O, E&O and Professional Liability insurers as coverage counsel and monitoring counsel. They have an intuitive understanding of insurance law, but also the substantive and procedural law governing the broad variety of liability claims reported under their clients’ policies. They have acted as insurers' counsel in connection with securities and consumer class actions, shareholder derivative actions, M&A claims, regulatory and criminal investigations, adversary and trustee's claims in bankruptcy, employment liability actions, and major professional contract disputes.

Mr. Manire and Ms. Galla look forward to the challenge of building a new firm. Their goal at Manire & Galla is to take advantage of the newest communication technologies and services to increase efficiency and accessibility, and to build even stronger, closer client relationships.
