Minority-Owned Business Claims
Building a business on your own is hard work, and all business owners have the right to feel proud of their accomplishments. However, following the 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico caused by an explosion on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig, businesses throughout the Gulf area saw significant disruptions in their operations, and in many cases, the effects hit minority-owned businesses especially hard.
In order to compensate business owners for the damage caused by the spill, BP has agreed to a settlement through the Deepwater Horizon Claim Center (DHCC). Unfortunately, in many cases, claims are being unfairly denied or are being appealed by BP. At Williams Kherkher, our attorneys understand how important your business is to you, and therefore we are dedicated to helping minority-owned businesses pursue the full amount of compensation they need.
