March 10, 2023

The U.S. law firm of Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP today announced it has bolstered its global Insurance Services practice with the addition of partner Gary I. Khutorsky, resident in the firm's Fort Lauderdale office. Khutorsky is a leading insurance coverage attorney with significant experience representing insurance companies in coverage claims disputes, bad faith, and complex litigation matters.

"Hinshaw's insurance team is pleased to welcome highly skilled coverage attorney Gary Khutorsky and assist him and his clients in taking full advantage of the synergies made possible by this move," said Pedro E. Hernandez, a Miami partner and co-leader of Hinshaw's global Insurance Services Practice Group. "Our domestic and foreign insurance companies will also greatly benefit from his well-known depth and experience in complex coverage matters and bad faith litigation."

For over three decades, Khutorsky has concentrated his practice on defending insurers nationally, including general liability, professional liability, automobile liability, and property coverage. He is involved in every aspect of insurer representation, from rendering coverage advice to prosecuting and defending declaratory judgment actions at the trial court level and on appeal. Hinshaw's sought-after insurance services practice, deep bench, existing talent, marketing support, and the firm's nationwide footprint, will allow Khutorsky to serve existing clients better and continue to grow his practice.

Khutorsky has authored thousands of coverage opinions, litigated hundreds of declaratory actions, and has been involved in some of the highest profile and complex coverage matters of the day, including the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal at Penn State, San Bernardino and Pulse Nightclub mass shootings, U.S. Soccer concussion litigation, the mass casualty event at the 2021 Astroworld Festival, the Champlain Towers Surfside collapse, and other notable cases. He was formerly a partner with Litchfield Cavo, LLP.

Khutorsky frequently speaks at insurance and industry sector events on insurance coverage and bad faith issues. Holding an AV® Peer Review Rating from Martindale-Hubbell, Khutorsky has been repeatedly listed in the Florida Trend Magazine's Legal Elite and Super Lawyers as one of the top insurance coverage attorneys in the state. He received his J.D. from the University of Florida and a B.S./B.A., with honors, in Psychology/Russian Studies from the University of Florida. He is admitted to the Supreme Court of Florida, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, and the U.S. District Court for the Middle, Northern, and Southern Districts of Florida.
