RPWB a top firm for asbestos cases, other toxic torts

CHARLESTON, SC – An international law firm ranking service has named Richardson, Patrick, Westbrook & Brickman as one of the six top firms in the United States for toxic tort litigation.

RPWB was listed in the product liability, mass tort and class action: toxic tort – plaintiff category. The Legal 500 highlighted the firm’s well-regarded asbestos and mesothelioma practice as well as the firm’s fight in 2016 to ensure all homeowners with a mold problem would be eligible to receive compensation from a South Carolina electric cooperative.

Here’s what The Legal 500 had to say:

“Richardson, Patrick, Westbrook & Brickman, LLC’s Mount Pleasant-based group often handles class actions and MDLs concerning asbestos and environmental litigation. Christopher Tuck represented a number of homeowners in a class action against Horry Electric following the discovery of mold growing in the plaintiffs’ shrink-wrapped homes; in 2016, the defendant’s motion to disqualify certain plaintiffs as class members was opposed and the South Carolina Court of Appeals affirmed the terms of the $6m settlement. The team includes J. David Butler in Barnwell, Michael Brickman in Charleston and Gregory Lofstead.”
