Representative Experience

Directed insurance recovery litigation on behalf of The Archdiocese of Portland in Oregon against various insurance companies. Successfully recovered in excess of $75 million from insurers for settlement of numerous tort claims. Since then, Mr. Curley has also directed similar insurance recovery efforts on behalf of other religious organizations against their insurers.
Multimillion-dollar recovery in the largest construction-defect case in the history of the state. Case involved claims of negligence, breach of contract, and breach of warranty. Representation of The Resort at Seaside against a general contractor and some 28 additional subcontractors, architects, designers, vendors, and material suppliers. Case complexities included dealing with condominium association rights and complex insurance and coverage issues.
Successful resolution of state court insurance coverage recovery action against multiple national and international insurers for a multinational manufacturer named as a potentially responsible party in the ongoing extensive Portland Harbor cleanup. As a part of that proceeding, obtained an antisuit injunction prohibiting insurers from continuing with a duplicative action brought by them in another state seeking a declaratory judgment of no coverage. Coverage was sought for the client under insurance policies of predecessor companies that had owned the client's current Portland facility within the Portland Harbor cleanup study area.
