Benchmark Litigation Names Anderson Kill a National Tier 1


Anderson Kill has been ranked a National Tier 1 firm in Insurance Litigation in Benchmark Litigation 2015. Benchmark also recognized Robert M. Horkovich and William G. Passannante, co-chairs of the firm's Insurance Recovery Group, as national litigation stars.

"While Anderson Kill offers a full range of litigation services," Benchmark Litigation 2015 notes, "including commercial, bankruptcy, securities and intellectual property, its primary calling card is insurance; in that regard, the firm is dedicated to policyholder-only matters. Far from finding this a limiting approach, the firm has instead excelled at this with gusto, 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.'”

With respect to Robert Horkovich, Benchmark cites a frequent opponent in court: “Bob Horkovich has taken over with abandon. I view him as the organizer for the other side, the ‘rabble rouser,’ the ‘troublemaker.’ But I say that fondly because I think the world of him. He’s relentless and quite a character and he has an unshakeable belief in his clients’ cause.”
