Environmental/Toxic Tort Ligation
Over the years, our attorneys have defended commercial businesses, product manufacturers, suppliers and distributors, general contractors and other professionals in a wide variety of class action lawsuits. We have served as both lead counsel and local counsel in the federal and state courts of Missouri and Kansas. Our attorneys have been actively involved in the defense of mass toxic tort lawsuits including claims involving exposure to diacetyl (a chemical used in popcorn flavoring), asbestos, lead paint, acrylic compounds, silica and other chemical exposures. We also handle the defense of large tort and class action litigation arising out of defective design, construction and product claims for both residential and commercial properties. Additionally, the firm is currently defending several cases alleging violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and Junk Fax Prevention Act. We have handled cases involving potential classes of hundreds of thousand of individuals and alleged damages of multi-million dollars.
