Anderson Kill & Olick has announced that Charles T. Lee, managing shareholder of the firm's Stamford, CT office, has accepted a nomination by Connecticut governor Dannel Malloy to serve as a superior court judge. Mr. Lee was confirmed by the state legislature on March 6, 2013.
"Charles has had a long and distinguished career as a litigator in Connecticut, and we know he'll make an excellent judge," said Robert M. Horkovich, managing shareholder of Anderson Kill. "We wish him all the best and are grateful for his tenure at Anderson Kill."
Costa N. Kensington, chair of Anderson Kill's Corporate and Securities Group, will take over as interim managing shareholder of the firm's Stamford office. Mr. Kensington's areas of practice include corporate and commercial transactions, corporate governance, corporate finance and securities, including mergers, acquisitions and financial restructuring, and venture investments. Many of these transactions are international/cross border and involve foreign jurisdictions and taxes. Shareholders Edward J. Stein and Cort T. Malone will head the firm's insurance recovery practice in Connecticut.
Mr. Lee's practice has concentrated in commercial litigation and insurance recovery exclusively on behalf of corporate policyholders. He is chairman emeritus of the Insurance Law Section of the Connecticut Bar Association.
