Asbestos & Toxic Tort
Asbestos litigation is among the most complex and high exposure areas of litigation the corporate world has ever faced. Accordingly, it is critical to retain counsel with a deep understanding of the acute demands and dangers involved.
One of the things that sets us apart is our considerable experience as National Counsel. In that capacity, our goal is to successfully manage mass litigation through a coordinated, consistent, and aggressive approach. We have been retained by numerous clients to coordinate their litigation strategy by:
- developing consistent themes
- coordinating discovery responses
- managing documents through repositories and databases
- developing and preparing representatives for deposition
- managing local counsel
- selecting and developing experts
- orchestrating overall trial strategy
Hart McLaughlin & Eldridge has unparalleled success in litigating asbestos and toxic tort cases. We understand the nuances of the litigation, we developed many of the successful litigation theories used today, we know the experts, and we have the respect of both counsel and the courts. We have served as National Coordinating Counsel, National Trial Counsel, and National Discovery Counsel, and our lawyers have successfully tried cases and managed asbestos and toxic tort dockets throughout the country.
We are not only familiar with the science, medicine, and product lines involved in asbestos and toxic tort litigation, but the importance of aggressive and proactive case workup. Additionally, members of our team have published articles, made presentations at professional conferences, and taught continuing legal education courses on topics germane to this constantly evolving practice. Few other law firms can compete with our experience and success in this complicated area of litigation.
