Toxic Tort &

Environmental Litigation

We Have You 

Covered

Leaders in Litigation

Claims related to exposure to chemicals, materials and natural substances present challenges to your organization. Our toxic tort team identifies the critical issues to address your legal challenges:

  • Was the plaintiff exposed to your product? 
  • Are there alternative sources of exposure? 
  • Does the science support a relationship between your product and the alleged injury?
  • Is there evidence to show your product caused the alleged injury? 

Our toxic tort attorneys are experts at nailing down these critical issues, which routinely lead to early dismissals, opportunities to exclude experts, favorable rulings on summary judgment motions and advantages during pre-trial and at the trial stages of litigation.

Experience in Adapting to Evolving Litigation
