BALTIMORE, MD – A team of five law firms has been selected by the Maryland Transportation Authority to assist the state in its lawsuit against the parties responsible for the Francis Scott Key Bridge collapse.

The announcement was made this week by Attorney General Anthony G. Brown. The firms were selected from a group of applicants who submitted proposals for legal services to the state in connection with the bridge collapse.

The selected law firms are Kelley Drye & Warren, Liskow and Lewis, Partridge LLC, The Lanier Firm and Downs Ward Bender Herzog & Kintigh. The firms have deep experience in maritime disasters, tort litigation, insurance recovery and dispute resolution, and will work closely with the Public Prosecution Service to develop and pursue a litigation strategy to recover damages for the State and its agencies .

“Today I thank the Maryland Transportation Authority for its prompt consideration and approval of this important request. I would also like to thank Willcox & Savage, a maritime firm serving as assistant counsel on another OAG case, for assisting on an interim basis and providing critical advice during our competitive selection process,” said Attorney General Brown. “The immediate availability and dedication allowed us to jump-start our efforts to protect the interests of the state from ‘Day 1’. We appreciate Wilcox and Savage’s continued assistance as we transition to the newly selected team.”

The request will now be submitted to the Public Works Board (BPW) for approval at its meeting on Wednesday, May 15, 2024.
