Goldberg Segalla’s Asbestos Case Tracker will keep you up to date on asbestos litigation with summaries of — and access to — the latest court decisions, legislative updates, and other developments from across the country.

Our asbestos team has decades of experience in this complex and ever-evolving area of law. We serve as national coordinating, trial, and local counsel for clients in a broad spectrum of industries that have been joined in asbestos litigation — including retailers, rail operators, utility providers, contractors, commercial roofers, distributors, and manufacturers of insulation, appliances, industrial equipment, chemicals, and many other products. Our team has litigated thousands of cases over the last 30 years.

Goldberg Segalla has a team of battle-tested trial lawyers within a very short commute of three of the nation’s most plaintiff-friendly jurisdictions — what the American TortReform Alliance has dubbed Judicial Hellholes — Madison County, Illinois; St. Clair County, Illinois; and The City of St. Louis, Missouri. Coupled with our longtime work defending clients in New York City Asbestos Litigation (NYCAL), we have a strong, on-the-ground presence to protect their interests in nearly half of the 10 most challenging venues for defendants.
