Daniel J.

Gioia, the award is given to someone who has made “lasting and outstanding contributions to the Society.”

Mr. Standish has over 20 years of experience and is nationally recognized as a leading attorney in professional liability insurance coverage matters and disputes.  He is regularly ranked in the top tier of Washington, DC insurance lawyers by Chambers USA, as well as recognized as a leading lawyer in The Legal 500 US.  Mr. Standish has played key roles at PLUS since 2001, including having served as a trustee and president and currently serving as a member of the board of directors of the PLUS Foundation, PLUS's charitable arm.

PLUS is a nonprofit organization founded in 1986 by industry professionals who recognized the need for a forum for individuals involved in the field of professional liability.  The Founders Award recognizes an active member of the Society who has, among other things, shown “creativity and innovation” to address the organization's tasks, promoted PLUS in the industry and to the general public, and been involved in “developing, implementing, improving and/or continuing its programs.”
