Environmental / Toxic Torts

Having initially handled lead paint litigation, our attorneys have since developed enduring relationships with several insurers and manufacturers faced with an explosion of litigation involving injuries from prolonged exposure to asbestos, silica, benzene, mold, and other contaminants. We have considerable experience in the trigger-of-coverage issues arising in this context, and regularly negotiate cost-sharing agreements among the participants on successive years and layers. Our client base extends from self-insured manufacturers, to international insurers, to municipalities small and large. We have developed an enviable record in defending these matters, yielding cost-saving results for our clients through aggressive representation.
