Represented owner of natural gas pipeline in $30 million corrosion dispute

We represent the owner of a 27-mile natural gas pipeline constructed in Atlanta, Georgia, who discovered widespread external corrosion before the line was commissioned.  After more than two miles of the pipeline had to be replaced—at a cost of more than $30 million—King & Spalding was retained to recover the Company’s losses against the engineering companies and contractors responsible for the pipeline’s design and construction.  The matter included two related actions: a litigation in federal court involving four defendants and a separate arbitration against the pipeline constructor.
