Benchmark Litigation Names Anderson Kill a National Tier 1 Firm for Fourth Straight Year

  • November 29, 2017

Anderson Kill has been ranked a National Tier 1 firm in Insurance Litigation for the fourth year in a row by Benchmark Litigation. Benchmark Litigation 2018 also recognized Robert M. Horkovich and William G. Passannante, co-chairs of the firm's Insurance Recovery Group, as national litigation stars.

In addition, Benchmark deemed Anderson Kill a recommended litigation firm in New York, recognizing Mr. Horkovich and Mr. Passannante as state litigation stars. Joshua Gold, chair of the firm's Cyber Insurance Recovery Group, was recognized as a future star.

Basing its assessment largely on client input, Benchmark Litigation 2018 reports: ”While Anderson Kill offers a full range of litigation services 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." The firm has also managed to parlay its reputation as a go-to shop for traditional insurance-related areas like asbestos into a haven where clients can turn in instances of more recent threats such as cloud-related data breach and privacy issues. "These types of matters – cybersecurity, the cloud! – are areas that Anderson Kill really got a head start on years ago." Clients are equally appreciative; one notes the firm's "very high level of service, quality and industry expertise," adding, "The result they achieved for us was excellent, in the face of scorched-earth insurance company litigation defense strategy…”
