Environmental & Toxic Tort

 

Perez Morris attorneys have represented corporations, land and building owners and public entities in environmental, toxic tort and product liability matters. Our team has defended manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, contractors, and premises owners in thousands of asbestos personal injury claims brought against them. We have a broad range of experience which includes defending claims involving hazardous materials, environmental exposure, chemicals, groundwater and air contamination, as well as landfill litigation. Our attorneys have served as National Coordinating Counsel throughout the United States for manufacturers and large engineering and technical companies in toxic exposure matters. We have years of experience leading multi-attorney teams and representing commercial entities, large manufacturing clients, and suppliers of commercial and consumer products in complex, high exposure litigation including asbestos and benzene. Our Environmental and Toxic Tort Practice Group works closely with outside experts to rebut technical theories of scientific and medical causation. We advise on risk management, compliance and coordinated litigation strategies with clients.

 

 

At Perez Morris our goal is to provide the best defense consistent with our clients’ individual goals. This includes initiating an organized and aggressive defense in preparation for taking cases to trial. It also includes getting cases in a posture for settlement or an ADR proceeding in a timely and efficient manner. We handle all of our cases with a result-oriented approach, balancing a strong representation of our clients with realistic cost containment. A reasonable concern of every client in environmental and toxic tort cases is the extent of legal fees and costs. In addition to our fees being very competitive, we work with our clients to develop innovative, alternative approaches that result in considerable savings to our clients without sacrificing quality legal representation. In all matters, our focus is on what the client wants to achieve, and we provide whatever counseling may be required for our clients to formulate their objectives.

 

 

We welcome the opportunity to work with you in handling your environmental and toxic tort litigation matters. We are available to give presentations or to conduct seminars and training sessions on environmental and toxic tort topics.
