Environmental Liability

The Group has defended insured in a number of environmental matters, including claims for damages and wrongful death associated with asbestosis, mesothelioma, and silicosis.  We have represented premises owners, product manufacturers, general contractors, sub-contractors, and numerous other employers in litigation arising from site conditions, unsafe work environment and OSHA violations.  These types of cases require the ability to coordinate and manage thousands of documents generated through the discovery process for claims that can take years to settle, along with extensive knowledge of the federal regulations and state laws governing these claims.  Additionally, these types of cases require detailed analysis and proof to properly defend the insured from resulting liability.  Our attorneys are qualified to manage litigation of this size in a cost-efficient manner through the proper division of duties between attorneys and paralegals.
