About

Managing Partner: Robert M. Horkovich
Number of lawyers: 68

Firm Overview:
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: 

Insurance Recovery:
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, property losses, business interruption losses, products liability, professional liability, intellectual property claims, commercial crime insurance, 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.

Contact: Jeremy E. Deutsch

Employment & Labor:
Anderson Kill counsels management in every phase of employment and labor law on a full range of issues affecting the workplace. If litigation ensues, the firm provides cost-effective and results-oriented representation. The firm also represents employers in labor arbitrations, union negotiations and union avoidance. The firm provides neutral investigation services to employers faced with claims of harassment or discrimination. Hiring a neutral, experienced third party to investigate such claims, rather than simply referring them to internal Human Resources departments, can insulate an employer from punitive damage awards, if the investigator’s recommendations are followed.
