Toxic Tort & Mass Toxic Tort Litigation

Booth, Mitchel & Strange LLP's work in toxic tort and mass toxic tort litigation predates the demise of the asbestos industry. We represented a major asbestos producer and manufacturer in thousands of personal injury and property damage cases; and currently defend manufacturers of asbestos containing products and commercial landowners sued for asbestos related injuries and property damage in courts throughout California. In asbestos cases, a firm partner serves as Regional Counsel in charge of trials in the Western United States for major manufacturing. In addition, we have represented product manufacturers, suppliers and others in mass and individual chemical and toxic exposure litigation, including the Film Lab Cases, the personal injury cases arising out of the Stringfellow Acid Dump and numerous mold, formaldehyde and “sick building” cases.
