Representative Engagements

  1. Retained as lead counsel for the asbestos creditors committee in bankruptcy proceedings, the firm was charged with establishing the debtors' total liability for asbestos personal injury claims.

    Result: Caplin & Drysdale attorneys established the debtors' total asbestos liability was billions more than the opposing parties claimed. The debtor paid several billion dollars to fund a trust designed to pay asbestos victims for decades.

  2. Claimants injured by chemical exposure retained Caplin & Drysdale to protect their interests when their defendant corporation filed for bankruptcy.

    Result: Our attorneys negotiated an agreement providing for a payment of tens of millions of dollars to settle those claims.
