Caryn’s experience in the construction industry began in 2007 with Safeco Surety, now Liberty Mutual Surety, handling surety claims as Senior Surety Counsel in the Chicago office.  In addition, Caryn brings years of commercial litigation experience gained at two national New York and Chicago law firms, primarily in contracts, business and insurance law, that will enhance her efforts to support and connect with insurance and surety clients globally.
