British Petroleum Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill

Toxic Tort & Environmental Contamination; Governmental and Sovereign Representation



In 2015, NPR obtained an historic settlement for the State of Florida against British Petroleum arising out of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. NPR represented Florida in its effort to recover economic losses because of this disaster. Ultimately, the firm recovered $2 billion for the state of Florida.

In addition, NPR represented more than 20 other governmental entities in litigation against BP, and more than 1,000 businesses, ranging from small restaurants to publicly traded corporations, in their claims against BP related to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. To date, the total settlements obtained by NPR in the BP matter exceed $3 billion.

NPR partners Cary Patterson and Michael Angelovich handled the historic BP Deepwater Horizon litigation for our firm clients.
