Environmental and Toxic Tort Defense

The Van Winkle lawyers have more than thirty years of experience advising and defending clients embroiled in environmental and toxic tort claims. Our clients include premises owners, contractors, product manufacturers, and material suppliers. Our clients also include real estate and private equity investors evaluating the toxic tort risks associated with a transaction.

Sometimes lead counsel and sometimes local counsel, our lawyers have served as lead counsel in more than 5,000 toxic tort cases filed in state and federal court in North Carolina, South Carolina, Delaware, Ohio, and Alabama. Van Winkle lawyers also assist premises owners and employers in responding to employees with toxic tort concerns. We help clients make informed decisions based on that client’s particular facts and circumstances.
