Asbestos claims will cost the Australian economy over $8B in the next 30 years. Litigation has and will impact on individuals, employers, product manufacturers, the petrochemical and power industries, and their various insurers.
CBP has acted for corporate and insurer defendants in a range of asbestos related claims in New South Wales and around Australia - including product liability and worker exposure cases, risk management, and OHS questions. We provide long term strategic management advice to our clients as well as focusing on tactics in individual claims. CBP also provides advice on insurance trigger and indemnity issues to clients in Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
Working closely with our clients we address the legal, reputational and strategic issues in this sensitive and difficult area of long-tail liability. CBP draws on experience gained around Australia and from acting in cases in the United States and other jurisdictions.
