For more than three decades, Segal McCambridge has been a leader in asbestos litigation defense.

Nationally recognized and highly regarded for our breadth of knowledge and proven record of success, we protect Fortune 500 companies, major manufacturers, premises owners and insurers in bet-the-company litigation since the 1980s.

What We Do

Segal McCambridge attorneys handle all aspects of asbestos litigation on a national scale.

Whether defending a client named in a single case or serving as national counsel to coordinate a defense across the entire country, we have the experience to analyze every asbestos litigation scenario, consider the risks and outline a unique and appropriate strategy to achieve our client’s goals.

If circumstances warrant early resolution, our skill negotiating global agreements, jurisdiction-wide agreements and individual case settlements is widely renowned, and we are regularly called upon to take over particularly contentious cases on short notice.

When litigation is the best course of action, we vigorously defend high-risk asbestos cases. We are knowledgeable on the science, medicine and law of asbestos litigation, which enables our lawyers to quickly and competently evaluate exposure scenarios, engage the right experts and mount an effective defense using carefully considered discovery and motion practice.

At trial, our litigators are in their element, translating highly complex theories into language judges and juries can easily comprehend.

  • Distributors
  • Installers
  • Insurers

How We Do It

Over the years, we have defended against every leading asbestos plaintiffs’ firm in the country, giving us insight into how they argue, how they operate and how we can extract the information we need to achieve a favorable result.

Segal McCambridge maintains excellent working relationships with leading trial consultants, prominent defense experts and a network of local counsel throughout the nation, enabling us to offer coordinated national counsel, avoid pitfalls, contain costs and streamline litigation.

 We maintain an up-to-date, trial-ready comprehensive database that includes asbestos-related medical and scientific sources and deposition and trial transcripts to support and structure each client’s unique defense.
