Insurance Recovery Resources

Anderson Kill provides each client with a computerized bank of insurance company materials, advertisements, and discovery, not possessed by any of our competitors to the best of our knowledge. Created over more than 25 years of insurance coverage litigation, this computerized bank literally can, and often does, mean the difference between winning and losing.

Anderson Kill has devoted substantial firm resources to collecting those public and private documents (including drafting history, regulatory history, briefs and depositions). Anderson Kill uses this powerful ammunition for the benefit of policyholder clients.

Anderson Kill has briefed most insurance coverage issues in almost every jurisdiction in this country. Those briefs also are maintained on computer databases.
