The firm has successfully defended numerous employers, manufacturers,
contractors and premises owners against claims of personal injuries
other damages due to exposure to alleged toxins, principally
asbestos. Our attorneys rely on a wealth of courtroom experience,
as well as established
case management protocols and a full range of expert resources
to challenge the cause and diagnosis of many clinical conditions.
Often the result of
this rigorous investigation and defense of claims is a successful
resolution in advance of trial, or the reversal or reduction
of a negative trial outcome
through the appellate system.
The reputation and experience of our attorneys has led to service
as regional counsel in overseeing the defense and administration
of thousands of
claims, which involves developing and maintaining litigation
and settlement budgets, negotiating large-scale case resolution
supervising numerous local and trial counsel on specific cases.
