Patton Boggs LLP Key Developments

Patton Boggs Hands $15 Million to Chevron to Settle Ecuador Claims

Patton Boggs has handed over $15 million to Chevron and issued a statement of regret, bringing to an end its high-profile legal battle with the company. A month after the firm vowed to defend the "below the belt" counterclaims brought against it by Chevron, the firm has settled claims against it with a multi million dollar payout. Patton Boggs had been acting on litigation stemming from toxic drilling waste pits in Ecuador. Claimant lawyer Steven Donziger had secured a $9.5 billion judgment against the Chevron, which Patton Boggs had attempted to enforce in 2010. However Chevron then accused Donziger of fraudulently securing the judgment and it launched a case against Patton Boggs alleging that it had concealed his tactics. The firm said Chevron had agreed to drop all claims against it and added: "Patton Boggs regrets its involvement in this matter." In March Judge Lewis Kaplan of the US District Court for the Southern District of New York found that the judgment was unenforceable as it was the product of fraud and racketeering activity. One month later the judge said he "had difficulties" with Patton Boggs' attempts to avoid defending its case in New York due to its partners being "stateless persons". Judge Kaplan granted Chevron's application to pursue its case against Patton Boggs, which have now been brought to a close with the settlement.
