“I bring experience and efficiency to bear, along with a practical and level-headed mindset, when handling litigation.”

Rachel Snow Kindseth represents clients in the area of litigation, including commercial, employment and insurance coverage on behalf of policyholders and in appellate practice.

Rachel has represented policyholders in coverage claims involving commercial liability, products liability, property damage and business interruption. 

She has both jury and bench trial experience.  In addition to her trial court experience, Rachel has drafted appellate briefs for cases before the Connecticut Supreme Court and Appellate Court and the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.  

Most recently, she helped a policyholder-client prevail against dozens of insurers in an interlocutory appeal before the Connecticut Supreme Court involving allocation for defense costs and indemnity for asbestos-related personal injury claims.  Rachel has worked on several injunction actions involving non-competition agreements, inevitable disclosure and/or trade secrets, representing either former employers or former employees, including Elm City Cheese Co. v. Federico, 251 Conn. 59 (1999). She also handles petitions for receivership and other collection matters for a regional public utility company.
