BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Policyholder lawyers form new firm

Robin Cohen

More than 20 former McKool Smith policyholder lawyers and other staff have left to form a rival firm.

New York-based Cohen Ziffer Frenchman & McKenna LLP is headed by Robin Cohen, former head of the insurance recovery practice of McKool Smith, according to a statement issued by the new firm.

In 2016, Ms. Cohen led a group of lawyers from Kasowitz, Benson, Torres & Friedman LLP to form McKool Smith’s insurance recovery practice.

Other former McKool Smith lawyers joining the new firm include Adam Ziffer, Kenneth Frenchman and Keith McKenna as named partners, and Meredith Elkins, Orrie A. Levy, Marc T. Ladd, Michelle R. Migdon and Alexander M. Sugzda as partners.

The new firm will represent Fortune 500 companies, hedge funds and private equity firms, the statement said.

McKool Smith did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
