Diana Shafter Gliedman Named a 2023 "Women to Watch" Honoree by Business Insurance


Anderson Kill is pleased to announce that Diana Shafter Gliedman, a shareholder in the firm’s Insurance Recovery Group and a member of its executive committee, has been named to Business Insurance's list of 2023 Women to Watch.

Diana has successfully represented clients seeking recovery under almost every type of insurance policy, with an emphasis on property, EPLI, D&O and professional liability insurance. Current and recent clients include a national retailer seeking D&O coverage in securities litigation alleging toxic workplace and breaches of fiduciary duty, national retailers seeking property insurance for stores destroyed by arson and political violence; an international publishing house seeking insurance coverage for alleged trademark infringement under a media liability insurance program; and a national cable operator seeking insurance coverage for a steady stream of lawsuits in which it is named as a defendant based on the acts or omissions of vendors and business partners. Diana frequently litigates in state and federal courts around the country and has participated in dozens of successful mediations, securing hundreds of millions of dollars on behalf of her clients.

As the newest member of Anderson Kill’s executive committee, appointed in November 2021, Diana is part of the leadership team responsible for guiding, growing and managing the firm, helping to oversee all aspects of firm life from participating in the hiring process to training, mentoring and supporting junior attorneys.

In addition to Anderson Kill's executive committee, Diana sits on the firm’s hiring committee and diversity committee and chairs the firm's Restaurant, Retail and Hospitality industry focus group as well as the firm’s Professional Liability subgroup. She is also a member of the firm’s Sports, Media and Entertainment group. She sits on Law360 Hospitality Law Advisory Board, is co-chair of the New York State Bar Association Dispute Resolution Section's Insurance Dispute Committee and is a member of the American College of Coverage and Extracontractual Counsel, sitting on the College’s committee on alternative dispute resolution. A frequent author and speaker, Diana has published numerous articles in publications including Risk Management Magazine, Coverage Journal, Law360, Hotels Magazine and many others.

Robert M. Horkovich, Anderson Kill’s managing shareholder, commented: “Diana has long been integral to Anderson Kill’s success and she is a recognized leader nationally among professionals engaged in liability insurance issues. We thank Business Insurance for providing this richly deserved recognition.”

The Business Insurance Women to Watch Awards & Leadership Conference recognizes women leaders doing outstanding work in risk management and commercial insurance. Business Insurance readers nominated candidates for Women to Watch, and a panel of Business Insurance editors selected the honorees based on those nominations. More than an award, Women to Watch has developed into an educational program aimed at the advancement of women in the industry. This year's program will take place December 4-5, 2023 in New York City.
