Clients Interquisa Canada

Jones Day defended Interquisa Canada LP ("Interquisa") in federal district court in McAllen, Texas against a business interruption subrogation claim asserted by Zurich Insurance Company ("Zurich"). Interquisa is a chemical manufacturer located in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. In the Fall of 2004, Interquisa had a force majeure event that required it to shut down its manufacturing plant and curtail deliveries to its customers. One of Interquisa's customers, M&G Polymers, Inc. ("M&G") submitted a business interruption loss to its insurer, Zurich, arising out of the curtailed deliveries by Interquisa. After paying the business interruption loss, Zurich subrogated to its insured and sued Interquisa for breach of the supply agreement.
