Covington Secures Victory for Foster Wheeler in Coverage Appeal


WASHINGTON, DC, October 15, 2007 — Covington & Burling LLP has secured a major appellate victory in New York’s high court for Foster Wheeler LLC. On October 11, 2007, the New York Court of Appeals unanimously agreed that New Jersey law, rather than New York law, governs Foster Wheeler’s disputes with its insurers over coverage for asbestos bodily injury claims.

Covington partner Bob Long argued the appeal. The Covington team on the appeal and in other facets of this coverage dispute also includes partners Bill Skinner, Anna Engh, Saul Goodman, Ben Lenhart, Marialuisa Gallozzi, and Keith Noreika, of counsel Laird Hart, special counsel Mike Nicholson, Jarrett Williams, and Scott Levitt, and associates Tim Greszler, Ann O’Connell and Chris Murray.
