Clients Genentech, Inc.
Jones Day represented Genentech, Inc. in a dispute with a design-build engineer/contractor hired to convert a pharmaceutical plant located in Porriño, Spain. Genentech asserted claims for defective due diligence services, a substandard project feasibility assessment, and substandard design and construction of clean-in-place systems and other portions of the facility. After challenges to Genentech's complaint were defeated, a confidential global settlement was reached on mutually agreeable terms resolving claims asserted in the California litigation, AAA (ICDR) proceedings, and claims that were to be litigated in Spain.
