Edward Solensky Jr.
Edward Solensky, Jr. (Partner) focuses his practice on insurance defense and coverage, premises liability, transportation law, and product liability matters. For the past twenty years, he has successfully defended cases for supermarkets and retailers, restaurants, common carriers, and product manufacturers.
Mr. Solensky began his career with an insurance defense firm where he gained experience into the manner in which corporations and insurance companies defend serious personal injury suits. He left the defense bar in the late 1980s to serve as Corporate Counsel for Anchor Savings Bank FSB and Burns International Security Services, where he directed the company’s self-insured litigation program. Mr. Solensky’s involvement at Burns with premises security issues affords him a unique perspective in defending cases of inadequate security.

At Syracuse, he served as Editor of the Syracuse Journal of International Law and Commerce and authored “The President’s International Emergency Economic Powers after Regan v.
