Celia Jackson

Celia Jackson's practice focuses on insurance recovery and complex commercial litigation. A veteran in representing insureds for more than 25 years, her experience in litigation against insurance companies includes complex insurance coverage issues, including coverage under cyber, first and third party, D&O, E&O, pollution liability, and representations and warranty insurance. Celia's depth of knowledge is gained from years of litigating in state and federal courts.

Celia has litigated coverage for cyber attacks under general liability policies in cases of first impression, advised clients on the purchase or renewal of cyber coverage, and negotiated settlement of complex embezzlement claims under crime policies. Prior to joining Jones Day in 2015 she obtained coverage for a class action lawsuit under personal injury provisions of liability coverage; negotiated settlement of coverage litigation seeking indemnification under a D&O policy for a shareholders derivative lawsuit; represented an insured in an arbitration in which the insurer sought reimbursement of amounts paid to settle a professional liability claim on grounds that there was no coverage under the policy because the insured's acts that gave rise to the liability claim were not professional services within the meaning of the policy (the arbitrators ruled unanimously that the insured's acts were covered); and negotiated settlement for full policy limits for water contamination claims.
