Kiernan Trebach has developed extensive experience defending industry clients from lawsuits involving environmental pollutants, environmental related injuries and property damages, and environmental regulatory issues.  Our attorneys have defended manufacturers, distributors, and contractors against claims asserting injury from chronic exposure to toxins or hazardous substances, including asbestos, mold, lead paint, and silica. We have decades of experience in managing these types of claims and the unique evidentiary challenges relating to the admissibility of scientific evidence and testing under both Frye and Daubert standards.

Kiernan Trebach’s attorneys are also at the forefront of significant, building-related cases involving exposure to mold, toxic fumes and silica arising from defects in the design of major commercial structures, deficient techniques in construction and remediation, and faulty building materials. Our decades-long experience defending asbestos, mold, silica, and lead paint cases has made Kiernan Trebach a valued resource in managing complex environmental claims.

Our approach to resolution of environmental claims is often most successful when our attorneys are engaged early in the process, facilitating our ability to provide a thorough and accurate investigation and claim analysis, shielded by privilege.  It also allows us to explore pre-litigation resolution, monitor the remediation process, and mitigate potential damages.
