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

  • November 9, 2016

We are pleased to announce that Anderson Kill has been ranked a National Tier 1 firm in Insurance Litigation for a third year in a row by Benchmark Litigation 2017. Benchmark also recognized Robert M. Horkovich and William G. Passannante, co-chairs of the firm's Insurance Recovery Group, as national litigation stars. Mr. Horkovich was recognized as one of the nation's top ten practitioners in insurance law.

Benchmark also 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, and David Graff, co-chair of the firm’s Corporate and Commercial Litigation Group, were recognized as future stars.

Basing its assessment largely on client input, Benchmark Litigation 2017 cites one Anderson Kill client who says of the firm's insurance recovery attorneys, "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." Benchmark observes that "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." On this front, one client notes, "These types of matters – cybersecurity, the cloud! – are areas that Anderson Kill really got a head start on years ago."

With respect to Robert Horkovich, Benchmark cites a frequent opponent in court who observes, “I would say that a good percentage of my time is spent fending off the likes of Bob Horkovich, but that's not an accurate summation because there is nobody exactly like Bob!... He has done a great job with that firm, and no one fights harder for his clients. He really looks out for them like family."

Benchmark Litigation, a guide to America's leading litigation firms and attorneys, focuses exclusively on US Litigation. Benchmark researchers conduct extensive interviews with litigators and their clients to identify the leading litigators and firms.
