Ice Miller Welcomes Of Counsel Jodi Spencer Johnson
Insurance Coverage and Recovery Attorney Joins Cleveland Office
Ice Miller LLP is pleased to welcome Jodi Spencer Johnson as Of Counsel in Ice Miller’s Litigation group. Jodi’s practice has focused in the area of insurance coverage and recovery for over a decade, advising and representing corporate policyholders in liability and first-party insurance matters.
“Jodi helps clients mitigate risks by using her extraordinary eye for detail and focused experience in insurance recovery,” said Colette Gibbons, office managing partner of Ice Miller’s Cleveland office. “She offers an immense skillset that enriches the insurance coverage and recovery services offered through our Cleveland office.”
Jodi was among the inaugural class in Ohio certified as an Insurance Coverage Law Specialist by the Ohio State Bar Association. She now serves on the state bar’s Insurance Coverage Specialty Board.
Jodi has secured defense and indemnity for clients faced with mass tort, asbestos and environmental liabilities, obtained favorable rulings on bad faith claims, and has advised and represented corporate policyholders seeking coverage for business-interruption claims, property claims, directors-and-officers-liability coverage, and commercial-crime and fidelity-bond coverages. She has also worked with individual policyholders regarding their personal lines of insurance, including homeowners insurance.
Jodi has litigated in the courts of several states and in several federal district and circuit courts. Recently Jodi was part of a trial team that obtained a jury verdict against an insurer finding bad faith and awarding punitive damages in federal court. She also recently obtained a favorable ruling by the Texas Supreme Court on an issue of first impression in that state regarding the duty to defend an environmental action initiated by the EPA.
Outside of insurance, Jodi has represented individuals and corporations in business litigation and commercial matters, including non-insurance indemnity matters, employment matters, class action suits, property disputes, and ERISA-disability claims.
Jodi joins the Firm’s Litigation group. Ice Miller’s Litigation group has the experience of professionals who know the law and something more – clients’ business. We have the resource depth and diversity to take on problems clients are facing and bring them to resolution.
