Anderson Kill is pleased to announce that Robert M. Horkovich has co-authored a chapter entitled "Site Pollution Liability Insurance" in the recently published ABA book, Environmental Liability and Insurance Recovery. This inaugural edition of the book was published in May 2012 by ABA Book Publishing and was sponsored by the ABA’s Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section.

Environmental law and insurance law demand the mastery of an intricately involved set of concepts, definitions, rules, and regulations - all of which are continuously developing in response to environmental risks. Environmental Liability and Insurance Recovery addresses the legal issues at the crossroads of environmental law and insurance law. Specifically, the book addresses the diverse ways in which a party may be exposed to environmental liability and how insurance coverage may provide financial support for such liability.

The chapter authored by Anderson Kill, "Site Pollution Liability Insurance," focuses on the origins and evolution of environmental impairment liability insurance. It also includes a discussion of the primary pollution liability coverage products for site-specific environmental risks presently on the market.
