    About RPWB

    RPWB was formed in 2002 as a collective of talented legal minds who focus on complex litigation throughout the United States. The firm is well-respected for its work on mass torts and product liability cases, including mesothelioma lawsuits and pharmaceutical litigation. RPWB attorneys regularly hold leadership positions on class actions and other mass torts across the nation.

    RPWB founding member Terry Richardson was among the first attorneys in the nation to successfully hold asbestos manufacturers liable for causing mesothelioma cancer. Several attorneys at the firm played pivotal roles in the fight against tobacco companies in the 1990s that led to the Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement. Some of those same attorneys are currently assisting six Canadian provinces seeking to recoup public healthcare spending on smoking-related illnesses.

    In addition to national litigation, RPWB also represents individual people in many practice areas, including: catastrophic personal injury, truck accidents, railroad accidents, construction defects, medical malpractice, mesothelioma and other occupational lung disease, whistleblower & qui tam, nursing home abuse, pharmaceutical drugs and medical device cases.
