We know that experience matters to clients and
judges. And we have it. Our lawyers have actually tried a complex
class action to verdict, served as co-lead counsel in multi-district
litigation, secured a $106 million judgment in the first of the 2008 mortgage
meltdown cases to go to trial, obtained significant settlements in
royalty-owner disputes, and regularly represented individuals and businesses in
complex, bet-the-company cases.
We currently serve as co-lead counsel in national
antitrust and commodity class actions.
We represent numerous royalty owners in disputes against oil and gas
giants. We serve hundreds of individuals
whose lives have been threatened by exposure to asbestos. And we are helping landowners clean up
decades of environmental damage.
We have a strong team.
Our lawyers are some of the most experienced and talented of their
generation, and we are happy to match our credentials against others.
Our focus is on the future. We believe firmly that our nation’s legal
system was designed to protect individuals and businesses from the wrongdoing
of others and to assure a level playing field.
As lawyers, we have an incredibly important role to play in making that
system work for our clients. And we will
not shy away from a fight to protect their interests.
We are Burns Charest LLP.
