Clients Union Pacific Railroad

Jones Day represented Union Pacific Railroad in an insurance litigation matter after Union Pacific and its contractor M Bar D were sued by United National Insurance for declaratory judgment regarding the coverage of injuries to M Bar D's employee. We achieved a settlement resulting in M Bar D paying United National and providing services to Union Pacific at reduced charges on a going-forward basis to compensate Union Pacific for its attorney's fees. Union Pacific paid nothing as part of the settlement.
