ASBESTOS

Our highly regarded asbestos practice dates back more than 25 years, to the very start of asbestos litigation. From asbestos litigation centers like Madison County, St. Clair County, and Cook County, Illinois; the City of St. Louis; and Los Angeles, to other venues across the country, our litigators have led the way in effective, inventive defense strategies in thousands of cases involving more than 10,000 claimants.

Over decades, our asbestos litigators have developed an in-depth knowledge of their clients’ industries and products, including automobile manufacturers, power sports equipment manufacturers, agricultural and construction equipment manufacturers, railroads and others.

Companies often turn to us to help them break out of a taxing pattern of expensive settlements. They do this because we employ creative strategies to obtain early resolution of claims, often resulting in dismissals. We also have a track record of success in removing cases from perceived plaintiff-friendly jurisdictions like Madison County, IL. In fact, we represented the winning defendants in most of the seminal opinions on forum non conveniens, including the most recent forum non conveniens opinion from a Madison County, Illinois, asbestos case.
