Practice Areas

Our attorneys have represented clients in asbestos defense litigation since the early 1980's. The firm's asbestos practice has grown over the years to represent asbestos defendants in state and federal courts as regional counsel and local counsel working closely with national counsel. We have represented clients in virtually every sector of the asbestos industry including manufacturers, distributors, contractors and premises owners.

Our experience in defending asbestos claims through to trial includes the preparation and coordination of discovery responses and document production, preparation and presentation of corporate witnesses at deposition and trial, development and presentation of defense experts at deposition and trial, research, preparation for and cross-examination of plaintiffs' local and national experts at deposition and trial, and evaluation of litigation exposure. Moreover, we have a library of asbestos defense materials collected over the past decades including expert deposition and trial testimony, medical and scientific articles, regulatory information, briefs and motions on key asbestos issues.

Firm attorneys have defended cases involving a wide variety of products, including brakes and automotive components, electrical and switch components, wire and cable products, insulation materials and aircraft parts.
