Toxic Tort Litigation

Despite tort reform in certain jurisdictions, toxic tort litigation remains a significant threat throughout most of the country and is a growing threat beyond the U.S. Raising novel theories and seeking novel remedies, a well-financed plaintiffs' bar has been joined by increasingly activist mayors and state attorneys general, injecting political and media considerations into toxic tort issues. Jones Day's Toxic Tort team has the resources and experience to respond to the challenges of the largest, highest-profile mass actions, as well as complex single-plaintiff suits, in the courtroom and beyond. We have a proven record of success, not only at trial, but also in defending related civil, criminal, and administrative proceedings; securing insurance coverage for defense costs and liabilities; and advising on strategies for the treatment of toxic tort liabilities in mergers and acquisitions and bankruptcy proceedings. The breadth and depth of our Toxic Tort Practice—including our core team of seasoned toxic tort trial lawyers, along with specialists in related practice areas—will ensure a comprehensive, efficient response to any event potentially giving rise to toxic tort liability.
