Contemporary asbestos litigation bears little resemblance to asbestos litigation in previous decades. In the past 30 years, asbestos claims have forced more than 100 companies that manufactured products containing asbestos, such as insulation and cement, into bankruptcy. The absence of these manufacturers has eliminated many of the responsible parties and has emboldened plaintiff attorneys to bring new claims against companies that only had incidental involvement with asbestos.
Since 1995, attorneys at Governo Law Firm have successfully represented clients throughout the course of this change. We understand how to defend claims within the unique legislative and legal environment that frames asbestos litigation and other toxic tort actions. We know how much companies have at stake in these matters, and work tirelessly to prevent our clients from falling victim to the ever-expanding threat of asbestos litigation.
