Environmental & Toxic Tort

 

Perez Morris attorneys represent corporations, land and building owners and public entities in environmental, toxic tort and product liability matters. Our team has successfully defended manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, contractors, and premises owners in thousands of claims involving hazardous materials, environmental exposure, chemicals, landfill issues, as well as groundwater and air contamination. Our attorneys serve as National Coordinating Counsel throughout the United States for manufacturers and large engineering and technical companies in toxic exposure matters. We have decades 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 also routinely advise on risk management, compliance and coordinated litigation strategies.

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 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. We work with our clients to develop innovative, alternative approaches that result in considerable cost savings without sacrificing quality legal representation. In all matters, our focus is on what the client wants to achieve, and we provide whatever counsel may be required for our clients to achieve those objectives.
