Cokinos | Young Secures Eight-Figure Award for Pipeline Contractor

Led by the trial team of Matt Thompson, Gabriel S. Head, Russell W. Smith, and Laura K. Napoli-Janitens, Cokinos | Young secured an eight-figure award for its client, a pipeline contractor, and fully defeated an eight-figure counterclaim asserted by the owner, who was awarded nothing, in an arbitration involving the construction of a pipeline and associated facilities in Louisiana. Kyle A. Zunker and Alfredo E. Montelongo were also instrumental in the team’s success.

The case was a highly contested dispute with significant damages at issue, involving complex scheduling and productivity analyses and extensive pre-hearing and post-hearing briefing.

Matt Thompson and his team at Cokinos | Young provided us with excellent guidance, trial preparation, and advocacy as we pursued recovery of monies expended to fund the completion of a major project for which the owner refused to pay.  After many months of discovery and pre-hearing submissions, followed by 2 ½ weeks of arbitration hearings, Matt successfully prosecuted the claims.  Matt and his team at Cokinos | Young are hard-working, knowledgeable, and professional, and we are happy they are on our side.
