Mayer Brown Obtains Limits Settlement for Pro Bono Client
5 November 2007
Partners Neville Reid and George Tzanetopoulos obtained a policy limits settlement under a payment and performance bond on behalf of our pro bono client, Quinn Chapel. Quinn Chapel is a part of Chicago history. It houses the longest running African-American congregation in Chicago (org. 1844) and was a distribution center in the underground railroad. Such luminaries as Frederick Douglass, Susan B. Anthony, Booker T. Washington, and Martin Luther King, Jr. have spoken from the pulpit at Quinn. The building that houses the congregation was constructed in 1892. The general contractor for a substantial renovation of the chapel went out of business during the midst of the project. The P&P bond carrier ultimately agreed to pay over the entire penal sum of the bond for completion of the renovation work.
