The Legal 500 reported the following about Anderson Kill's Insurance Recovery Group and its recognized attorneys:
Anderson Kill PC’s ‘brilliant’ insurance recovery group solely represents policyholders in insurance coverage disputes, covering areas such as environmental, construction, asbestos and toxic tort liability, as well as D&O liability, IP claims, data breaches, cyber risks, product liability and business interruption losses. Philadelphia’s Pamela Hans successfully represented TransCanada in a case which affirmed coverage for business income losses incurred within the period of interruption, even though payments reflecting that loss were made outside of that period. In New York, team head Robert Horkovich is representing The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey in litigation commenced by its insurance company relating to coverage for numerous asbestos claims dating to the construction of the original World Trade Center, and Finley Harckham is defending AlixPartners in litigation brought by Illinois National Insurance Company, an AIG subsidiary. Washington DC’s Rhonda Orin is representing a national transportation company in a dispute with dozens of insurers over coverage for the clean-up of environmental contamination and for claims under the Federal Employers Liability Act. Cyber expert Joshua Gold, Diana Shafter Gliedman, William Passannante, who are based in New York, Steven Pudell in Newark, and of counsel Stephen Palley in Washington DC are also recommended.
