Anderson Kill Names Darin J. McMullen and Dennis J. Nolan Shareholders


Anderson Kill is pleased to announce that Darin J. McMullen and Dennis J. Nolan have been named shareholders in recognition of their distinguished service to the firm and its clients.

Darin J. McMullen joined Anderson Kill in 2006 and works in the firm’s Philadelphia office. Mr. McMullen's practice is concentrated in representing policyholders in the area of insurance recovery. He is also a member of the firm’s Hospitality Industry Practice Group and Financial Services Industry Group. Mr. McMullen has successfully represented and litigated on behalf of policyholders in obtaining insurance recovery in complex claims involving property losses, business interruption, EPLI, construction, professional liability, employee dishonesty and general liability claims. In additional to his insurance recovery practice, he has represented clients in disputes arising out of the interpretation and enforcement of indemnification obligations. Mr. McMullen represents clients in a variety of industries including manufacturing, hospitality, biotech, communications, defense contracting and construction. His clients include publicly held international companies, Fortune 500 companies and privately held businesses. He has been extensively involved with insurance recovery efforts following Hurricanes Katrina and Rita and has served on the American Bar Association's Task Force on Disaster Insurance Coverage. Mr. McMullen is a frequent speaker on the topic of contractual risk transfer and other legal insurance matters and has published extensively in publications including Corporate Counsel, Risk Management and The Legal Intelligencer.

Dennis J. Nolan joined Anderson Kill's New York office in 2009. Mr. Nolan, chair of the firm's Bankruptcy and Restructuring Group, concentrates his practice in bankruptcy and restructuring and insurance recovery. He is also co-chair of the firm's Financial Services Industry Group. Mr. Nolan has extensive experience representing debtors, creditors' committees and unsecured creditors in complex chapter 11 reorganizations. In many cases, his practice sits at the nexus of bankruptcy and insurance, as insurance is often a key asset in bankruptcy. He has represented clients including a major financial services institution in an Errors and Omissions and Directors' & Officers' insurance dispute in connection with a bankrupt subsidiary; a leading technology company in London arbitration of an insurance coverage dispute hinging on policy periods; and "feeder fund" defendants in the Madoff bankruptcy. In the Madoff litigation, Mr. Nolan was part of a team that took the lead among multiple defendants on a novel issue of law: whether the Securities Investor Protection Act and other securities laws alter the good faith defense under section 548(c) of the Bankruptcy Code to an actual fraudulent transfer claim. He has also handled diverse matters in commercial litigation, including copyright infringement, fraud and breach of fiduciary duty claims against officers and directors, and antitrust. In the wake of Superstorm Sandy, he has represented homeowners (including pro bono) who have been denied coverage for property damage sustained during the storm. In prior years, he also had significant responsibility for claims filed with the September 11th Victims' Compensation Fund.

"Darin and Dennis have proved themselves able, versatile litigators and invaluable counselors to our clients in their areas of concentration," said Robert M. Horkovich, Anderson Kill's managing shareholder. "It's a pleasure to recognize their service by welcoming them into the firm’s shareholder community."
