David R. Osipovich

Dave Osipovich is a partner in the firm’s Pittsburgh office. An experienced litigator, Dave focuses his practice on high-stakes complex commercial litigation and disputes, as well as insurance recovery on behalf of corporate policyholders.

Dave’s clients include representatives of a wide variety of industries, including telecommunications infrastructure, food, aerospace, energy, health care, chemical manufacturing, and heavy manufacturing. He has represented both plaintiffs and defendants in state and federal courts in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, California, Illinois, Oregon, Kentucky, Florida, Texas, and West Virginia.

Currently, Dave serves as National Litigation Counsel for one of the country’s largest telecommunications-infrastructure companies. In that role, he has helped his client avoid litigation more often than not, but has also successfully handled multiple lawsuits for claims such as breach of contract, rescission, ejectment, tortious interference, and fraud.

Dave is also part of a K&L Gates team pursuing several hundred-million dollars’ worth of first-party property insurance-recovery proceeds for a Fortune 500 chemical manufacturer.

In addition to his commercial-client practice, Dave has an active pro bono individual-client practice focusing on prisoners’ rights, malicious prosecution, and illegally-excessive sentences. Dave currently serves as the Pro Bono Coordinator for the firm’s Pittsburgh office.

Dave holds a doctorate in Philosophy from Vanderbilt University. Prior to pursuing his legal career, Dave published a number of articles in peer-reviewed academic journals, and held tenure-track teaching positions at Marist College and Eastern Washington University. He has also taught Philosophy at Allegheny College and the College of William and Mary.
