Defense Practice

The attorneys at Lankford Crawford Moreno & Ostertag, LLP have successfully defended a wide array of product liability and toxic tort actions, including claims of exposure to asbestos, benzene, silica, fiberglass, arsenic, methanol, ozone, other fibers and chemicals, groundwater contamination claims, medical device claims, premises liability claims, and other product defect claims. Our litigation expertise encompasses the representation of many industries, including companies that manufacture and distribute heavy equipment, appliances, boilers, semiconductors, automobiles, ships, aerospace and aviation products, insulation products and marine equipment. We also have significant experience representing contractor and premises defendants. Our attorneys have expertise in defending cases from inception through trial, including the critical mastery of the scientific issues in each case.

While we have extensive trial experience, we also pride ourselves on our negotiation skills and have established a constructive and professional rapport with many of the major plaintiffs’ firms that file asbestos, benzene and silica cases nationally. Our clients recognize our keen ability to manage litigation in a cost-efficient manner and, when favorable, realize the early resolution of cases. We are frequently called upon by our clients to negotiate settlements and try cases across the nation in matters being defended by other counsel.
