Complex Settlement Administration
We know the parties are confronted with complex master settlement agreements that include complicated disclosure guidelines, stringent participation requirements, strict timelines, and ethics rules that are constantly changing. In the midst of that, attorneys must ensure that healthcare liens are resolved and bankruptcy and probate requirements are satisfied. The list of responsibilities continues to evolve and grow for plaintiffs and defendants alike.
GRG navigates the complex demands of mass tort and class action settlements to achieve efficient and cost-effective closure. From large scale Multi-District Litigation to firm-by-firm settlements, we engineer and execute comprehensive settlement programs. We offer a flat, per-claimant fee structure that corresponds to the scope of services rendered. Our service areas can independently or collectively assist any settlement:
GRG serves as Special Master and Settlement Administrator for the courts and privately for settling parties, delivering successful closure to settlements ranging from pharmaceutical, product liability, and environmental matters to civil rights, church-related sexual abuse matters, and property damage matters.
GRG has administered and distributed more than $2 billion in gross settlement awards across dozens of mass tort settlements, involving tens of thousands of individual claimants.
GRG serves as an objective third-party to review medical records and proof, evaluate physical injury and damages, and process claims.
