National Cement Company: Insurance Coverage Litigation
We were engaged by a national cement company to act as counsel to prosecute an action in Washington State to obtain insurance coverage from its insurance carriers for claims made against one of its subsidiaries. We initiated a coverage action against 48 separate carriers while the parent company pursued similar litigation in Connecticut.
After the client settled its claims in the Connecticut action against many of its primary and first-tier excess carriers, we continued the action in Washington State against the remaining primary carriers and some of the remaining excess carriers, as well as bringing claims against the Washington Insurance Guarantee Association for insolvent carriers. The case is currently stayed while we proceed with settlement negotiations against those carriers.
