David Buishas Elected to Partner


BatesCarey LLP is pleased to announce that David J. Buishas has been elected to partnership, effective January 1, 2020.

David focuses his practice on insurance coverage disputes and complex commercial litigation. He serves as coverage and litigation counsel to domestic and international insurers in matters involving cyber liability, professional liability, general liability and excess/umbrella exposures. He also represents companies in product liability, railroad liability, construction accidents, contract disputes and civil rights lawsuits.

“It has been a privilege and pleasure watching David grow as a lawyer – from his first days with us during law school to becoming a sophisticated litigator, where he demonstrates all the characteristics of a BatesCarey partner,” said founding partner Robert J. Bates, Jr.

David earned his J.D. from Saint Louis University and B.A., cum laude, from the University of Dayton. Since 2018, he has been selected to the Illinois Rising Stars list, a peer review designation recognizing no more than 2.5 percent of Illinois lawyers under the age of 40.
