As one of the top cargo litigation firms in the nation, Lorance & Thompson has a long history in all facets of international and domestic cargo litigation.
The attorneys of Lorance & Thompson bring decades of experience to the quick resolution of claims based on the Carmack Amendment, COGSA, and all manner of international and domestic transportation litigation. Those in the industry understand that cargo claims are an inevitable part of doing business. We take great pride in our work in cargo litigation and have achieved unmatched success for our clients. Our attorneys are well published in the leading transportation journals and are often called upon to share their expertise with industry executives, professional organizations and the largest carriers in the country.
From bill of lading issues to warehouse claims, we have resolved even the thorniest situations. Our wide range of expertise allows us to bring a diverse set of skills to bear on any issue. Many times a cargo claim is wrapped up in larger litigation. Often we have untangled the most complex cases and achieved a quick and cost effective solution for our clients.
Lorance & Thompson is dedicated to building strong relationships with our clients. We recognize that a jury verdict is only one answer to cargo disputes and we strive to evaluate cases early and on an individual basis to determine which cases should be litigated and which should be resolved.
A small sampling of our recent accomplishments:
- Won summary judgment in a case concerning carrier tariffs, effectively reversing a growing body of negative federal case law.
- Reduced the Plaintiff’s alleged damages from over $2,000,000 to $180 as a matter of law. The opinion was upheld on appeal and is now the leading case in Texas on liability limitations in the bill of lading.
- In several cases regarding warehouse receipts we have resolved the dispute with our clients paying nothing.
- Our Laredo, Texas office has recently obtained a ruling dismissing our client from complex, multiparty litigation in the Rio Grande Valley.
