Bio

Calvin F. Branton focuses his practice on insurance defense and reinsurance litigation and arbitration. One of Cal’s greatest accomplishments is having served as counsel to St. Paul Fire and Marine Insurance Company, now Travelers, for nearly 35 years. He served as Chief Litigation Counsel and managed all of the non-claim litigation filed against the company, including multiple class action suits. In his representation of St. Paul/Travelers he also provided counsel on many insurance and reinsurance regulatory issues.

Cal has broad experience in E&O issues involving brokers and agents. He directed the run-off of all E&O claims worldwide for a London based brokerage firm, and significantly reduced the overall litigation expense generated by the run-off of the brokerage firm through careful supervision of the dispute process and vigilant management of inside and outside resources.

Later in his career as Director of Reinsurance Recoveries he worked with reinsurance markets worldwide to pursue reinsurance recoveries on behalf of St. Paul/Travelers. Among many other accomplishments, Cal managed for several years and ultimately successfully resolved a complex reinsurance dispute venued in the United Kingdom, France and the U.S.

Cal graduated magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa and Psi Chi from St. Olaf College, and received his law degree from William Mitchell College of Law.
