Asbestos claims will cost the Australian economy over $8 billion in the next 30 years. Litigation has and will impact on individuals, employers, product manufacturers, the petrochemical and power industries; and their various insurers.
We have 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 work health and safety matters.
We provide long-term strategic management advice to our clients, as well as focusing on tactics in individual claims. We also provide advice on insurance trigger and indemnity matters to clients in Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States.
Working closely with our clients, we draw upon experience gained around Australia, the US and other jurisdictions to address the legal, reputational and strategic issues in this sensitive and difficult area of long-tail liability.
