Patton Boggs: Plaintiffs’ Lawyers?

In brief:

Escalating the legal battle in the long-running dispute over pollution in Ecuador allegedly caused by Chevron Corp., the plaintiffs have secured the services of one of Washington, D.C.’s most powerful law firms.

Patton Boggs, an international firm that is also a major lobbying shop, started representing the Ecuadorean plaintiffs earlier this year, according to court papers filed in Washington last week.

Chevron is represented by another big player: Gibson Dunn & Crutcher. Stay tuned.
