Chad Novak
Underwriting Counsel

Chad brings deep experience, a wealth of understanding, and intellectual curiosity to his work. With more than a decade of experience in underwriting, claims and management, Chad has built strong relationships with many in the title insurance industry on a national basis. His far-reaching interests and personable approach are keys to success, both in his prior work in the banking industry and now in the title insurance industry, where he has provided agent underwriting, is active in education and training, develops business opportunities and advises on various legal matters.

Signaling his commitment to the industry, Chad is active in leadership positions in the Minnesota Land Title Association, the Minnesota State Bar Association and the Hennepin County Bar Association, in addition to being an appointee to the Minnesota Advisory Task Force on Uniform Conveyancing Forms.  A graduate of Marquette University Law School, he is a licensed attorney in both Minnesota and Wisconsin, and is knowledgeable in title and real estate matters in many other states.  Joining Commercial Partners Title in 2015, Chad brings current industry knowledge to his work on behalf of the clients to provide creative title insurance solutions.

Chad has made a home with his wife and their dog in Minneapolis, but has a broad view of the world. He’s an avid reader of historical fiction, and a student of history, art and culture, holding an undergraduate degree in Germanic Languages and Literature from the University of Kansas. Chad enjoys exploring Europe and regularly travels abroad to seek out new experiences. Musically inclined, he still continues to play guitar, a nod back to his first post-college job as a professional musician in a touring rock band.
