Toxic Torts

The largest verdicts in toxic tort cases are the result of a powerful, creative and well-organized plaintiffs’ bar that has become increasingly aggressive in targeting companies of all sizes whose alleged illegal conduct in some cases took place decades ago. Alston & Bird’s toxic tort team has all the necessary tools to ensure that your company does not become the next casualty of the toxic tort wars.

We help our clients anticipate and prepare for a toxic tort litigation risk by actively monitoring and assessing regulatory and legislative activity, media attention, similar litigation and the activities of the plaintiffs’ bar, activist organizations and the public health community. If litigation is filed, we also evaluate whether it is advisable to enlist the help of appropriate public relations experts to counter misinformation, as well as jury research consultants to test important trial themes, to ensure our clients have a realistic assessment of litigation. Using this insight, we evaluate approaches and combine those that will produce the shortest and most cost-effective path to termination of the litigation.
