Benchmark Litigation Once Again Names Anderson Kill a National Tier 1 Firm

 Share  print   Print
Anderson Kill has been ranked a National Tier 1 firm in Insurance Litigation for a second year in a row in Benchmark Litigation 2016. Benchmark also recognized Robert M. Horkovich and William G. Passannante, co-chairs of the firm's Insurance Recovery Group, as national litigation stars.

Benchmark also deemed Anderson Kill a recommended litigation firm in New York, recognizing Mr. Horkovich and Mr. Passannante as state litigation stars, Joshua Gold, chair of the firm's Cyber Insurance Recovery Group, and David Graff, co-chair of the firm’s Corporate and Commercial Litigation Group, as future stars. Mr. Gold won a precedent-setting federal appeals court decision finding coverage under a crime policy for a retailer that suffered a data breach and has developed a significant cyber practice. Mr. Graff has pioneered successful strategies to recover value for U.S. investors in foreign firms that have gone dark on U.S. exchanges, including unprecedented damage models accepted by courts in Delaware, New York and Nevada, as well as novel approaches to securities disputes with major broker-dealers.

Drawing on client input, Benchmark Litigation 2016 cites one who remarked “The folks at Anderson Kill are truly a great group of professionals, in every meaning of the word.” Benchmark observes that "the firm has also managed to parlay its reputation as a go-to shop for traditional insurance-related areas like asbestos into a haven where clients can turn in instances of more recent threats such as cloud-related data breach and privacy issues."

With respect to Robert Horkovich, Benchmark cites a frequent opponent in court: “I would say that a good percentage of my time is spent fending off the likes of Bob Horkovich, but that’s not an accurate summation because there is nobody exactly like Bob and … no one fights harder for his clients.”

Benchmark Litigation, a guide to America's leading litigation firms and attorneys, focuses exclusively on US Litigation. Benchmark researchers conduct extensive interviews with litigators and their clients to identify the leading litigators and firms.
