Product Liability – fire control system

In a $40 million product liability claim, we identified, at an early juncture, existence of a contractual indemnity from a subcontractor. The subcontractor denied an obligation to indemnify our client. However, after a lengthy trial, we succeeded in obtaining indemnity for both liability (damages) and our client’s costs.
