Over the past 10 years, C.I.S. became increasingly involved in asbestos defense litigation for Tier 2 & 3 Defendants such as Lincoln Electric, Hobart, Keasbey, Garlock and Foster Wheeler.

We developed a program of investigating these issues that proved to be successful in defeating approximately 35 straight claims in a single class action. We performed hundreds of asbestos and other environmental tort investigations.

We combine field work and extensive research with industry and union contacts to formulate a new method of defending asbestos claims against class action lawsuits. Our investigation over the years included Naval Vessels and Navy Yards, Cement Plants, Skyscrapers, Power Stations and Manufacturing Plants. Our clients in the field include O’Melveny & Myers, Sedgwick, Marks O'Neill, O'Brien Dougherty & Kelly, Lynch, Daskal & Emery, LLP and Greenberg Traurig.
