Subrogation

The founding partners of Creedon & Gill P.C., Jonathan Gill and Peter Creedon, have a proud record of success with challenging cases in difficult venues in the demanding field of subrogation litigation.

​Prior to establishing Creedon & Gill P.C., Mr. Creedon was managing attorney for the largest Travelers staff counsel office in the country. Mr. Gill joined him after a record of success in the Bronx homicide bureau. As Mr. Creedon grew the firm to a size that employed more than 45 attorneys, Mr. Gill developed the first nationally successful, recovery and service-driven, staff counsel subrogation operation.

​The private venture of Creedon & Gill P.C. is founded on this proven track record of success, and on an exhaustive knowledge of the technical, legal and financial issues central to subrogation litigation. Creedon & Gill P.C. provides expert, aggressive and cost-effective subrogation services for their clients, and is an outstanding choice for any client in need of forceful and uncompromising prosecutions of their subrogation actions.

​Focused Practice in Subrogation

​The unequaled experience of Jonathan Gill has established him as one of New York’s leading subrogation litigators, a position strengthened by the support lent by Mr. Creedon’s decades of experience handling high profile and complex cases.

​Mr. Gill is a graduate of Fire Training and Advanced Fire Training courses sponsored by the National Fire Protection Association; he is a certified arbitrator and a past member of the New York State Insurance Department’s loss transfer advisory committee. After receiving the opportunity to create, develop and manage the nation’s first recovery service-driven, staff counsel subrogation operation, Mr. Gill committed himself to master all of the aspects of the major case property, workers’ compensation, auto PIP and auto property damage lines under his management. From intake and investigation through litigation to trial, arbitration or settlement, every aspect of these varied lines received his uncompromising attention.

Utilizing his investigative skills honed as a prosecutor, Mr. Gill responded to the scenes of catastrophic fire, water, building collapse and airliner crash losses to conduct investigations and gather proof.

​Within a short time, the seven-figure recoveries of Mr. Gill’s subrogation unit, and its successes in terms of size, inventory and cost efficiency, rivaled those of any private firm. Mr. Gill drafted major case guidelines, cause and origin best practices, provided coverage opinions and taught training courses at the regional claim centers.

In private practice for the last five years, Mr. Gill has continued to provide his unmatched skills to insurers, commercial clients and third-party administrators who demand forceful and successful prosecutions of their subrogation actions.

In addition to the large loss cases, we have also handled auto personal injury, and property damage and property loss case under $100,000 for a number of carriers on a nationwide basis.
