Stevens & Lee represents clients in all areas of toxic tort and other product liability litigation. We have successfully resolved challenging toxic exposure allegations on behalf of many self- and non-insured clients. We regularly represent chemical and industrial product manufacturers in the defense of personal injury claims involving numerous and varied materials, including asbestos, mold, lead and chemical compounds such as cutting oils, paints, fuels, solvents, benzene, vinyl chloride and others.
Our attorneys handle complex civil litigation involving catastrophic injury, premises liability, multi-party litigation and class action suits on behalf of very large and high profile businesses. We have served as National Coordinating Counsel and coverage counsel for several companies named in over 25,000 asbestos personal injury and wrongful death cases in multiple jurisdictions and have defended numerous major claims arising from brain damage, cancers and other profound injuries.
We also have a rare sub-specialty involving litigation of high stakes toxic tort and environmental insurance issues in bankruptcy courts nationwide.
We also provide advice regarding complex federal regulatory issues and handle administrative litigation involving hazmat transportation, warranties, packaging, labeling and product recalls and have handled multi-million dollar chemical contamination related-environmental property damage and equipment contamination claims.
Outside of the courts, Stevens & Lee assist clients in the development of policies and procedures to coordinate and facilitate national handling of product liability issues and claims and to assess their self-insurance programs or other insurance coverage to minimize the potential for litigation.
Our experience and relationships with environmental consultants and testifying experts allows us to bring in a complete and integrated range of services to clients.
