Storm Lineberger is an associate in the Insurance Recovery Practice Group at Haynes Boone’s Dallas office. Storm’s practice focuses on corporate insurance recovery and related complex business litigation. Representing exclusively corporate policyholders, his practice covers a wide spectrum of industries and sections, including banking, technology, healthcare, construction, hospitality, retail, entertainment, professional services, oil and gas, and much more. Storm’s practice handles predominately corporate coverages, including the most prominent such as general liability, commercial property, and professional liability (D&O and E&O).
Though early in his career, Storm has gained significant experience working on major oil and gas and construction-related matters for clients seeking coverage as an additional insured under various subcontractors’ policies. Such matters are often complex and require a multifaceted approach, involving multiple carriers, subcontractors, and the pursuit of both coverage and indemnity. Storm has played a significant role in representations of hotels seeking commercial property coverage and of performing arts centers defending against and seeking claims for indemnity. Storm continues to build his practice by working on a wide array of high-profile matters involving major telecommunications companies, defense industry firms, real estate developers, oil and gas companies, healthcare systems, and many others.
As a former theatrical performer, most notably as Raoul in The Phantom of the Opera, Storm has a passion for supporting to the local arts community. He has served on the Board of the Dallas Theater Guild and has represented local performing arts centers. As recognition for his contributions to his hometown, Storm was honored as an Emissary of the Muses by the City of San Antonio, Texas. Storm has found that his experience of performing on stages from the Hollywood Pantages in Los Angeles to the Royal Albert Hall in London have grown useful in unexpected but substantive ways. Beyond the arts, Storm is a member of the Dallas Bar Association, the Insurance Law Section of the Texas Bar, the Dallas Association of Young Lawyers, as well as the Business Litigation and Tort & Insurance Practices Sections of the Dallas Bar Association.
