Anderson Kill & Olick PC has snapped up for its Newark, N.J., office a former Lowenstein Sandler PC insurance coverage litigator for policyholders who has counted General Electric Co. and Unilever Plc among his clients, the firm said Tuesday.
Robert D. Chesler joined Anderson Kill as a shareholder, bringing a practice that focuses on representing policyholders in coverage claims against their insurers and advising companies on their insurance programs, his new firm said.
Chesler's policy expertise includes cyberinsurance, privacy, intellectual property, directors and officers, and green insurance, according to Anderson Kill, which also said its new shareholder was a leading player in the development of modern insurance law in the 1980s.
"Anderson Kill has been a leader on policyholders' rights for 30 years now, and I've always admired them," Chesler told Law360 on Tuesday, adding that going to a smaller firm known for insurance coverage work seemed like a "perfect fit."
Anderson Kill's managing shareholder, Robert M. Horkovich, said Chesler has been "in the vanguard establishing pro-policyholder law" and that the firm is thrilled to have him on board.
