As outside and in-house counsel, the founding members of BrownGreer handled from opening to closing the three trust funds created in the Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceeding of the A.H. Robins Company to resolve more than 300,000 Dalkon Shield Claims.
Orran Brown advised the Trust’s management, Trustees, inside counsel and other outside counsel in the United States and other countries on the legal and managerial aspects of the Trust’s fiduciary duties, operations (including employment issues and the Trust’s lease, banking, investment and other contractual relationships), claims processing arrangements and coordination and design of Alternative Dispute Resolution, arbitration and trial proceedings on Dalkon Shield Claims.
Lynn Greer is the former General Counsel, Manager of the Legal Department and Executive Director of the Dalkon Shield Claimants Trust. Lynn directed outside trial counsel, managing and coordinating the defense of more than 600 product liability cases nationwide. She interviewed and hired defense counsel in thirty-five states, planned and conducted training sessions for outside counsel on medical, legal and policy issues in the Dalkon Shield litigation and developed computer systems to track case activity and outside counsel costs.
In their roles with the Dalkon Shield Claimants Trust, Orran and Lynn were instrumental in leading the Trust to closure eight years ahead of schedule and contributed significantly to what has been hailed as one of the most successful mass claims resolutions in history.
