Joshua Dorothy handles insurance coverage claims primarily for incidents that occur indoors, such as professional negligence, commercial crime or errors and omissions claims against executives and board members.
As a newer attorney, he also did outdoor work such as slip and falls but found he preferred the coverage work and advising closely-held businesses. It involves litigation and work at the early stages of dispute resolution.
Dorothy became a shareholder in the firm in 2015. He says the firm has a “unique generational situation” because there are four partners who have practiced together since the 1980s and two younger partners who began practice in 2004 and 2008. (Dorothy is the youngest.) The older partners are encouraging the younger to take the lead, he says.
Dorothy is an active writer on legal issues, most recently in For the Defense, a national publication of DRI. He has been Hamline University School of Law’s national moot court competition coach, taking teams to the quarter, semi and national finals. His teams have finished first and second in the region as well.
Dorothy is active in the Twin Cities arts community, and currently is a member of the Guthrie Theater’s Corporate Council. But his commitment to the law is no act.
