Notable for a firm of our size, we have achieved considerable success in cases large and small, including very complex, multijurisdictional litigations. As an example of the latter, from 1999 through 2005, the Firm represented Petroleo Brasileiro S.A. (“Petrobras”), the Brazilian oil company, in an action against U.S. performance bond sureties and a consortium of Brazilian construction companies in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. The case involved claims and counterclaims in excess of one billion dollars for cost overrun and delay damages relating to two offshore oil production platforms in Brazil. In describing the discovery in the case as “massive,” the Court noted that that the parties exchanged more than a million pages of documents and took over 100 depositions. After a two month bench trial, the Court awarded Petrobras $370 million in damages. The Court observed that the case “required an understanding of complex issues of naval architecture, construction contracts, performance issues, financial and accounting issues, suretyship law, Brazilian corporate law, and many other issues.” Moreover, the Court noted that “the case was exceedingly difficult and pursued with skill and efficiency” by Petrobras’ legal team.
