Mass Tort/Toxic Tort Litigation

Summary

Led by Jack Laffey, LLG’s attorneys who defend toxic tort claims make up the go-to team in the State of Wisconsin in this specialized area of the law. LLG’s lawyers have decades of experience in lead poisoning, silica and asbestos litigation representing a full array of defendants from pass-through suppliers of insulation materials to major manufacturers of asbestos products to respiratory protection manufacturers to property owners and employers in all these cases.

LLG treats these cases not as special, jargon-filled cases in boxes; rather, they get treated as unique, individual pieces of litigation that must follow the rules that other product liability cases follow. No shortcuts and no shorthand. While these cases pose serious danger and risks for defendants, applying a rigorous, analytical, and burden of proof centered approach allows for the leveling of a playing field long-since thought to be rigged for plaintiff lawyers.

The current state of toxic tort litigation in Wisconsin looks far different since the lawyers of LLG entered the fray. The game changed. The rulings changed. The defense changed. Ask around. You’ll want us as part of your team.
