"Mark was in at the birth of bankruptcy practice as we know it, and he's been a player in major cases for more than thirty years.  He also was one of the first attorneys in the country to understand the significance of the interplay between bankruptcy and insurance recoveries" said Robert M. Horkovich, Anderson Kill's managing shareholder."  We're delighted to welcome him back at a time when our bankruptcy practice has been gaining momentum."

"It's deeply satisfying to return to Anderson Kill," said Mr. Silverschotz.
