Brad D. Brian was named “Litigator of the Week” by Am Law Litigation Daily for his defense of Transocean Ltd., the drilling company that owned the Deepwater Horizon oil rig involved in the 2010 Gulf of Mexico explosion and environmental disaster.
The article highlighted the favorable verdict Mr. Brian obtained for Transocean on Sept. 4, 2014 and cited the ruling by U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier. According to the Sept. 11, 2014 report, Judge Barbier “ultimately concluded that BP was in charge of the botched safety test and bears most of the blame.”
Mr. Brian is a nationally known trial lawyer specializing in complex civil and criminal litigation of all types. He has represented Transocean since 2010, leading the company’s defense in the multidistrict litigation, as well as against claims brought by the U.S. Department of Justice.
