Toxic Torts & Environmental
When claims arise from alleged exposure to toxic products and agents, successful defense requires the experienced attorneys at CR&D and the practice team led by attorney Kevin McNaughton. Our attorneys are well-versed in the complex arenas of science, medicine, and the law. They are keenly aware of what is necessary to establish general and specific causation, how to defend against these key issues, and the bases for successful Daubert challenges.
Our practice focuses on representing clients in mass torts, class actions, multi-district litigation, regulatory enforcement, citizen suits, and other complex matters. Our team of lawyers have the understanding and capability to address the legal challenges facing clients in these rapidly evolving areas of the law.
Moreover, CR&D has the experience to try high-stakes cases, including those involving alleged soil, water, asbestos, and air pollution. We advise clients on novel defense strategies, including those designed to facilitate early resolution. Additionally, we work closely with physicians, engineers, modelers, appraisers, economists, accountants, and other experts who play an important role in environmental and toxic tort litigation. Finally, we have extensive appellate experience that we bring to the table, in order to frame cases strategically and anticipate key legal issues.
