In the face of a myriad of law suits resulting from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster, British Petroleum has retained Chicago based firm Kirkland & Ellis, reports the Chicago Tribune.  According to a Tribune source’s comment, the pending legal battles, which involve plaintiffs in over five states and range from shrimpers to shareholders, will make the Exxon Valdez litigation look like a small-claims court session.  The Valdez litigation spanned nearly two decades.

No doubt, the fees both plaintiffs’ firms and defense counsel will rack up in the ensuing litigation will break records as well.

Founded in 1909, Kirkland & Ellis is an international law firm headquartered in Chicago. The firm has additional offices in Hong Kong, London, Los Angeles, Munich, Palo Alto and San Francisco.
