The firm served as lead counsel in representing Interface Flooring Systems, Inc. and affiliated entities (Interface), the world’s leading producer of soft-surfaced modular floor coverings (carpet tiles), against Hartford Fire Insurance Company (Hartford) in an important and complex insurance coverage case. We filed suit seeking millions in damages for Hartford’s refusal to defend or indemnify our client under commercial general liability policies with respect to several lawsuits across the country alleging that the carpet tiles and the manner of their installation were defective, leading to damage to concrete slabs and an unpleasant odor in buildings. Following the successful resolution of the underlying cases which we also handled, our client received favorable rulings with respect to a motion to disqualify counsel, and on important discovery issues, including orders compelling Hartford to produce certain underwriting and claims documents. The case then settled on a confidential basis shortly thereafter in June 2008.
