Benchmark reports that Anderson Kill “excelled” at insurance recovery “and is revered by peers on both sides of the ‘V.’ ‘These guys are zealots,’ opines a peer. ‘They view insurance litigation as a ‘holy war - good and evil.’ But they know what they’re doing; they’ve been doing this a long time. They know these carriers and they’ve kept these files, meticulously protecting them.’”
Benchmark further reports that Bob Horkovich, the firm’s managing shareholder and co-chair of its Insurance Recovery Group, “is applauded by all who come into contact with him, including adversaries.” Benchmark relays a client assessment: “Bob Horkovich knows EVERYTHING about asbestos coverage litigation! All of his work [for us] has been exceptional.” Bob Horkovich has obtained over $5 billion in settlements and judgments from insurance companies for his clients. His trial victories include one of the top 10 jury verdicts in the United States, the top insurance recovery jury verdict in the United States, seven landmark state Supreme Court decisions, eight jury verdicts and nine bench trial decisions in favor of the policyholder. Among other clients, he represents claimants committees in 524 (g) asbestos trusts pursuing of billions of dollars of insurance proceeds, including the Official Talc Claimants Committee in LTL Management, the spinoff Johnson & Johnson created to resolve asbestos claims relating to its talc products, and the Tort Claimants’ Committee in Cyprus Mines, which provided talc to Johnson & Johnson. Joshua Gold, chair of Anderson Kill’s Cyber Insurance Recovery Group and co-chair of the Marine Cargo Insurance Group, has represented numerous corporate and non-profit policyholders in various industries, with recoveries for his clients well in excess of $1.5 billion. His practice involves matters ranging from international arbitration, data security, directors and officers insurance, business income/property insurance, commercial crime insurance, admiralty, cargo, and marine insurance disputes.
