As a result of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, BP has agreed to a settlement of a class action lawsuit brought to recover lost profits and property damage resulting from the spill. To qualify for this settlement, a company must be located in a broad geographic area in the southeastern United States (“eligible area”), not be an excluded industry, and show a minimum decrease in 2010 and a subsequent minimum increase in gross revenues in 2011 (“Vtest”). There is no requirement to directly link the decrease in revenues to the oil spill, and there is no cap on the amount of damages BP will pay. Companies that qualify can file claims until April 2014. True Partners Consulting, in coordination with another consulting firm that is an expert in the field, can help companies analyze their revenues to determine whether they meet these requirements and assist in preparing and filing their claim.
