Biography

Since joining Dilworth Paxson in 1993, C. Lawrence Holmes has established a track record of landmark legal successes and longstanding client partnerships. Larry concentrates on representing financial institutions such as insurance companies, finance lease companies, and lenders. A passionate advocate for his clients, Larry is skilled at humanizing large institutions and effectively communicating with juries and judges.

Larry’s work includes pivotal cases that have impacted Pennsylvania law. He obtained a jury verdict for the defense on behalf of Lloyd’s of London after a two-week trial in the Commerce Court Division of the Court of Common Pleas of Philadelphia for breach of contract. On appeal, he successfully argued before both the Superior and Supreme Courts of Pennsylvania and helped establish a new law in Pennsylvania on behalf of the insurance industry.

Larry also secured a milestone victory for a finance lease company, when a federal judge denied a motion to certify a class action against it as part of a claim exceeding $37 million. In addition to defending the motion for class certification, he obtained summary judgment against the lessees on all claims and counterclaims and obtained an order that the lessees were liable, jointly and severally, for all of the leasing company’s legal fees. The decision serves as a powerful tool for financial institutions in cases and class actions arising out of program failures.

With a growing reputation as an engaging legal thought leader, Larry has spoken numerous times at the Equipment Leasing and Finance Association’s (ELFA) annual Legal Forum, most recently as a keynote speaker at the 2017 Forum. Larry was appointed to the ELFA Legal Committee for a three year term in 2015, and for a number of years he has presented Pennsylvania Bar Institute CLE programs on insurer bad faith, and other insurance topics. Prior to joining Dilworth, Larry served as a Law Clerk to the Honorable Chief Justice Robert N. C. Nix, Jr. of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court—writing opinions, providing counsel, and learning the skills of passionate persuasion and respectful dissent that would inform his career.

As an elected Township Commissioner, Larry exemplifies Dilworth’s commitment to public and community service. He is serving his third term as a Commissioner of Haverford Township, Delaware County, Pennsylvania, where he has resided with his family for over two decades. He has previously served on the Firm's Executive Committee from 2008 through 2014.
