Chambers USA Ranks Anderson Kill's Insurance Recovery Group for 11th Straight Year


Anderson Kill has been named one of the nation’s top law firms nationally for insurance dispute resolution for the eleventh consecutive year by Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business. The firm's New York office was also ranked in the top tier for insurance dispute resolution, and its New Jersey office was recognized for insurance litigation.


Chambers describes Anderson Kill's national insurance recovery practice as a "high-quality team capable of handling multiparty disputes and taking on coverage matters in diverse areas such as asbestos liability, bodily injury, data breach and financial lines." Of the New York team, a client cited by Chambers says, "They are a cut above in terms of services that risk management and large corporations need on major disputes. If there a major dispute out there, you will find Anderson Kill involved in it."

Chambers recognized the following attorneys in Anderson Kill's insurance recovery practice as leaders in their field:

Robert M. Horkovich - Insurance: Dispute Resolution: Policyholder (National and New York)

William G. Passannante - Insurance: Dispute Resolution: Policyholder (National and New York)

Finley Harckham – Insurance: Dispute Resolution: Policyholder (New York)

Robert D. Chesler - Litigation: Insurance (New Jersey)

Steven Pudell – Litigation: Insurance (New Jersey)

In addition, Chambers deemed Pamela D. Hans, managing shareholder of Anderson Kill's Philadelphia office, a "Recognized Practitioner," signifying that Ms. Hans is handling notable matters and is on Chambers' research radar.

Chambers calls Robert Horkovich "a renowned and highly experienced litigator skilled in high-stakes insurance coverage disputes" and cites a client who declares: "He is an all-star in this space. He is remarkably hands-on, very thorough and an excellent communicator." Of William Passannante, co-chair of Anderson Kill's insurance recovery group, Chambers reports, "Clients describe him as 'an expert in his field' who is 'very passionate about the work'"; one such client says, "His strongest traits are to look at issues, make good recommendations and do so very quickly." Finley Harckham, Chambers notes, "is recognized for his broad coverage practice, which includes advising on business interruption and construction claims, as well as property damage and environmental liability disputes."

In the firm's New Jersey practice, Chambers cites a client who dubs Robert Chesler "a very smart and creative lawyer” and another who says of Steven Pudell, “Steve's been immensely helpful and has given us outstanding advice. He's focused on strategy and what the end goal is.”
