In this newly-created position, Dwares will tap his past litigation experience--much of it in professional liability cases involving design firms--to work with the CNA team to evaluate complex claims and strategize as to their resolution.

Dwares is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania Law School. He was a partner at the law firm of Ross, Dixon & Bell, a nationally preeminent insurance coverage and commercial litigation practice. Prior to joining the Claims Department, Dwares acted as a consultant to CNA Claims.

CNA is hiring Litigation Counsels across its specialty lines. Dwares is the second to be hired.
