Dow Corning Corporation – Bay City, MI

The Case

Neligan LLP acted as debtor’s counsel in the Dow Corning Corporation bankruptcy filed in Michigan, one of the largest mass tort driven Chapter 11 bankruptcies ever filed.  Dow Corning was faced with hundreds of thousands of product liability claims arising from the manufacture and sale of medical products involving silicone gel, principally silicone gel breast implants.   As debtor’s counsel, Neligan LLP lawyers were involved in all aspects of the Chapter 11 reorganization.  The case resulted in a confirmed plan of reorganization, and the company successfully exited bankruptcy with a strong, vibrant business.
