Asbestos and Dust Diseases

Our specialised asbestos and dust diseases team is experienced in advising insurers, reinsurers and uninsured companies in their asbestos liabilities, other latent diseases claims including silica induced diseases and secondary tobacco smoke.

Due to the complex nature of asbestos and dust diseases, claims are often made decades after the alleged exposure took place, making it increasingly difficult to pin point how the disease developed.

Our track record in this highly specialised area includes acting in more than 1,000 dust diseases claims including many sensitive cases. Most notably, our team was involved in negotiating a confidential agreement for our client (with a large and complex Australia-wide asbestos portfolio) which resulted in minimising the publicity to our client and its customers.
