McKool Smith's victory on behalf of Warren Pumps In the Matter of Viking Pump Inc. and Warren Pumps LLC Insurance Appeals, topped Law360’s listing of the “Biggest Insurance Ruling” of 2016.

In May 2016, the firm’s attorneys represented Warren Pumps in securing a landmark decision from the New York Court of Appeals holding that standard form insurance policies containing “non-cumulation provisions” or “prior insurance provisions,” allow a policyholder to obtain coverage for its full liability from policies covering any policy year in which some injury took place.  In September, the firm scored another major victory for Warren Pumps, this time before the Delaware Supreme Court on several critical issues, including assignment of policy rights and the trigger of coverage, which allowed Warren to access more than $500 million dollars in asbestos insurance coverage limits.
