Reed Smith’s Insurance Recovery lawyers have been recognized for their handling of several landmark cases over the past two years including, first, serving as co-counsel for AmerisourceBergen in two lawsuits involving thousands of causes of actions filed by states, counties, and other plaintiffs and arising from the misuse of prescription opioids and, second, for defending MGM and obtaining the full $751 million liability insurance coverage in settlement of thousands of claims arising from a 2017 mass-shooting incident in Las Vegas, among others significant matters.
“Providing innovative legal services aligned with our clients’ goals and business objectives is what we’re all about, so we’re very pleased at this latest recognition for our insurance recovery practice,” said partner David Halbreich, chair of Reed Smith’s Insurance Recovery Group.
