O’Melveny’s Schiavoni Quoted in Westlaw Journal Asbestos on Third Circuit RulingAugust 20, 2013 O’Melveny & Myers’ partner Tancred Schiavoni was recently quoted in a Westlaw Journal Asbestos article regarding the Third Circuit ruling that Garlock Sealing Technologies cannot challenge W.R. Grace & Co.'s asbestos-related bankruptcy restructuring plan. As the August 16, 2013, article reported, Schiavoni represents Arrowood Indemnity, one of the settling parties in support of the W.R. Grace restructuring plan. “Garlock... did not allege it will face an explosion of new claims if the plan is confirmed, just that the plan will reduce future contribution payments and setoff amounts,” he said in the article.
Schiavoni is a member of O’Melveny’s Class Actions, Mass Torts, and Insurance Litigation Practice, and resides in the Firm’s New York office.
