Alston & Bird’s asbestos litigation experience is multifaceted. We have battle-tested, full-service trial teams that have tried and won mesothelioma cases in the most difficult asbestos jurisdictions in the nation. Using an efficient client-focused team internally, and a “virtual law firm” working model with local law firms, we are able to go into any jurisdiction with any case and try it to a result.
Additionally, our attorneys are responsible for the management of regional and local counsel in the day-to-day operation of asbestos dockets. As national and regional litigation managers, we interface with company lawyers and management, devise and implement document collection and repository processes, create document and discovery databases, develop company witness and defense strategies, and cultivate new medical and scientific experts.
We also effectively manage large dockets and resolve cases in several jurisdictions including, but not limited to, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
