Toxic Tort & Asbestos

For well over two decades, our firm has successfully defended manufacturers and suppliers of products containing asbestos. We began handling Pennsylvania asbestos claims for an international industrial manufacturing company (currently in the the top 20% of the Fortune Global 2000) and because of our exceptional management of the local claims, we were selected as National Counsel for the client in 2000. As National Counsel, the firm has successfully managed tens of thousands of asbestos claims in more than three dozen states. The volume of claims we have handled has expanded our expertise and made us a leading force in asbestos and toxic tort litigation throughout the country.

We are well versed in the science of asbestos and have built solid relationships with key expert witnesses across the nation. Our team provides all services from coordinating discovery, depositions, and expert selection through settlement negotiations and trials. Unlike many firms that handle the defense of asbestos claims, we have successfully tried many claims to verdict.

The strides we have made within our asbestos practice provide fundamental strategies that allow us to defend products liability cases and other toxic tort and mass tort matters including Benzene and pharmaceutical litigation claims.
