Defending The Rights Of Companies In Asbestos Claims And Lawsuits Since Our Inception
At Wilbraham, Lawler & Buba, P.C., our lawyers have dedicated themselves to becoming one of the leading asbestos defense teams in the country. Providing a strong defense during complex and sophisticated asbestos lawsuits has been the foundation of our firm since our founding in 1989.
Our clients include manufacturers, suppliers, employers, premises owners and retailers. With offices in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Delaware and West Virginia, we have the resources to effectively represent clients at state, regional and national levels.
Success In Complex Defense Through Deep Investigations
We have successfully resolved a broad range of asbestos cases, having obtained voluntary dismissals, summary judgments and favorable settlements in the vast majority of cases.
Our team of litigation attorneys has tried numerous cases to verdict in state and federal jurisdictions throughout the country. By collectively investigating, litigating and resolving hundreds of thousands of asbestos cases, we offer an unparalleled understanding of this complex legal area.
Strategic Use Of Expert Witnesses And Sophisticated Databases
To help our clients accomplish their goals, we provide a level of preparation and analysis that few civil litigation firms can match in asbestos cases. We understand the tactics that plaintiffs use when pursuing damages, and we leverage our in-depth knowledge and experience to better position each client’s case.
In addition to our in-house team of professionals, we have developed a close network of medical and environmental specialists we can call upon to strengthen the overall defense plan when needed. Our experienced, talented and dedicated paralegals provide key support for our clients’ defense strategies by utilizing our comprehensive database to help us better prepare for depositions and trials.
Withstanding Aggressive Plaintiff-Side Tactics Through Challenges To Credibility Of Witnesses
We understand how high the stakes are during asbestos litigation cases. Companies have been forced into bankruptcy protection, and aggressive plaintiff attorneys are targeting companies that previously would have been considered peripheral defendants. Our defense of many companies can no longer rely on whether a product is encapsulated, as many of the remaining co-defendants may have that same defense.
As these cases have evolved, our approach to defending these cases has also changed. We aggressively defend during the discovery stage to test the credibility of the plaintiffs’ witnesses, both in terms of their ability to recall events and how they used the product. Our goal is to develop our clients’ defenses during the discovery phase so that we will have strong motions for summary judgment as well as a solid position in settlement discussions and at trial.
As asbestos litigation brought by plaintiffs continues unabated, our firm’s effectiveness in defense is more important than ever. Companies facing litigation over mesothelioma and asbestos are welcome to schedule a consultation. Get in touch with our team online or by phone at 215-564-4141.
