Environmental & Toxic Tort


The environmental and toxic tort group has successfully defended matters in a wide array of settings, including litigation involving alleged chemical exposures, soil and groundwater contamination, and regulatory violations. Our experience in this area is broad and includes the defense of claims involving arsenic, asbestos, electromagnetic radiation, formaldehyde, herbicides, lead, pesticides, silica, termiticides, and a multitude of other chemical and biological substances. We regularly handle individual, multi-plaintiff, and class action claims in both federal and state courts. Our track record includes successful dispositive briefing, denial of class certifications, exclusion of countervailing expert opinions at Daubert hearings, and, when necessary, a vigorous defense at trial.
