Automotive Manufacturer Warranty Dispute

Represented an automotive manufacturer against a number of international Tier 1 suppliers which had delivered defective parts that were used in the client’s automotive products. The cost of recalling the vehicles and replacing the defective parts was in the tens of millions of dollars. Since the Tier 1 suppliers each supplied a product during different times and under varying warranties, Richard and his team first had to conduct a root cause analysis to determine which products were involved in the problem. Following that, they had to allocate legal responsibility among the suppliers. Following protracted negotiations, and without having to file litigation, they were able to negotiate a settlement fund that totaled over $80 million, fully reimbursed the client for the entire campaign and investigation costs.
