Areas of Practice
Toxic and Other Mass Tort Defense
The Firm's members have decades of experience in defending product manufacturers sued in toxic tort and other mass tort litigation. In addition to representing clients in Maryland and its surrounding states, since the latter part of the 1980's, the Firm has had the privilege of serving as national coordinating counsel for various manufacturers in matters such as asbestos, fire retardant treated plywood, hearing loss and other "pattern" litigation. The Firm has the expertise, experience, and advanced technologies to develop, coordinate, and execute a comprehensive and consistent defense strategy to manage litigation to defined goals and results. The Firm accomplishes this in a cost-effective manner intended to minimize a client's exposure in what often can be or become "bet-the-company" mass litigation.
