Philip W. Savrin has a litigation practice with an emphasis on commercial insurance coverage disputes and defense of professional liability claims. He began his legal career as a Staff Attorney for the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, after receiving his undergraduate degree from Clark University (B.A., magna cum laude) and his law degree from Boston University (J.D., cum laude). He then clerked for The Honorable Harold L. Murphy of the Northern District of Georgia, Rome Division, before entering the private practice of law.

Mr. Savrin appears in state and federal courts as part of his trial and appellate practice. In 2007, he successfully defended a civil rights claim in the United States Supreme Court, resulting in an 8-1 decision to reverse the Eleventh Circuit's denial of qualified immunity to a police officer charged with the excessive use of force (Scott v. Harris, 550 U.S. 372 (2007)). He has since been lead counsel in two additional Supreme Court cases; Plumhoff v. Rickard involving a high speed pursuit; and Reed v. Gilbert, involving the First Amendment’s application to sign ordinances.

Mr. Savrin remains active in professional and civic associations such as the Cobb County Chamber of Commerce and the Metro Atlanta Arts and Culture Coalition. He has enjoyed a variety of leadership positions, including President of the Atlanta Chapter of the Federal Bar Association and Chair of the Governmental Liability Committee of the Defense Research Institute. He is a regular speaker at continuing education seminars and has written numerous articles on topics of interest to his clients.
