Environmental Coverage Dispute

Gilbert LLP was retained by a major electric power company as settlement counsel in connection with pending litigation being handled by another firm. The company is seeking to secure insurance proceeds from more than a dozen insurers for its environmental liabilities related to coal-ash basins at the company’s power plants.

The use of separate settlement and litigation teams can have distinct benefits in resolving complex, multi-party disputes. It is a technique Gilbert lawyers pioneered, both for matters being litigated by other firms, as here, and for matters we litigate ourselves.
