Mukherjee-Gothi's practice has involved representing corporations and insurers in defence of civil liability claims, with a focus on occupiers’ liability, motor vehicle liability and the defence of professional liability (pharmacists, veterinarians, lawyers and independent adjusters).

Additionally, she has experience in large environmental contamination cases, product liability cases, property damage claims and providing coverage opinions, as well as broad trial experience as a commercial litigator. Before becoming a lawyer, Mukherjee-Gothi worked in the insurance industry.

“Sudevi brings 15 years of knowledge and experience in insurance defence litigation to the firm, and represents a new skill set that allows our reach to be expanded to more of our institutional clients and their insurers. This area of law is important to us because all business owners are either insured or self-insured for claims and liabilities that may arise during the course of their business. Having Sudevi on board puts the firm in a position to better service the needs of our clients,” said Ted Evangelidis, head of Pallett Valo’s litigation practice.

“We are thrilled to be adding the depth and expertise Sudevi brings to the table to round out our firm’s service capabilities and to provide our already prominent litigation group with greater bench strength,” he added.
