Overview

Anderson Kill's insurance recovery attorneys have recovered billions of dollars in judgments and settlements from insurance companies over the course of more than three decades and have made insurance law in multiple states -- including California, in a landmark decision establishing "all sums" and "stacking" principles for policyholders, and New York, in a decision affirming not only defense coverage for long-tail asbestos claims even after exhaustion of limits, but also attorneys' fees for the defense coverage dispute.

Our Insurance Recovery Group represents policyholders in insurance coverage disputes regarding environmental/asbestos/toxic tort liability, directors’ and officers’ liability, data breaches and other cyber risks, products liability, professional liability, intellectual property claims, commercial crime, property losses, business interruption losses and many other types of claims. The Group is supported by a library of tens of thousands of insurance company regulatory filings, manuals, briefs, advertisements and other discovery materials.

We represent policyholders only in insurance coverage disputes, maintaining no ties to insurance companies and so avoiding conflicts of interest. In a corporate legal environment in which insurance companies carry tremendous weight, both as clients and as sources of defense work, Anderson Kill's policyholder-only commitment serves as a competitive advantage.
