Anderson Kill PC is a full-service corporate law firm best known for its work in insurance recovery. The firm represents policyholders only in insurance coverage disputes, and its freedom from ties to the insurance industry gives it a competitive advantage in defending the rights of policyholders. Anderson Kill’s practice areas work closely together, and the firm’s expertise in insurance recovery lends an added dimension to the work of many of its other practices. The Wall Street Journal has described Anderson Kill as combining ‘corporate polish with the pugnacity of a plaintiff ’s firm.’
Main Areas of Practice:
Anderson Kill has recovered billions of dollars in judgments and settlements from insurance companies for policyholders in a broad range of industries. It has successfully pursued high-stakes claims in every type of corporate insurance including environmental/ asbestos/toxic tort liability, directors and officers liability, products liability, professional liability, intellectual property claims, commercial crime insurance, property losses, business interruption losses and many others. The practice has made insurance law in multiple states – including California, in a landmark decision establishing ‘all sums’ and ‘stacking’ principles for policyholders, and in 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. Underpinning this work is a set of unique evidence databanks related to the insurance industry. The firm has also been a trailblazer in cyber insurance recovery and has a cyber insurance recovery group.
