Toxic and Other Mass Tort Defense
The Firm's members have decades of experience in defending toxic tort and other mass tort litigation. In addition to regionally or locally representing clients sued in asbestos, opioid, and other "pattern" litigation filed in Mid-Atlantic courthouses, the Firm has significant experience serving as National Coordinating Counsel for various manufacturers in matters such as asbestos, silica, coal tar pitch, fire retardant treated plywood, and hearing loss litigation, and an athletic conference in multi-district concussion injury cases. 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.
