Emerging Trends in Asbestos Litigation
I am pleased to have been invited to speak at the three-day conference on Emerging Trends in Asbestos Litigation, sponsored by HB Litigation Conferences at The Four Seasons Los Angeles Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Wednesday, March 11. I will be participating in a panel on issues relating to International Asbestos Claiming and Globalization. During the presentation, I will be discussing the global trends in mining and manufacturing of raw asbestos fiber, where it has been and currently is being used throughout the world, and how all of that global usage can impact American companies and the asbestos bankruptcy trusts set up as a result of the reorganization of those companies who have gone through Chapter XI reorganizations. We will be talking about how bankruptcy trusts evaluate and pay these foreign claims and will discuss anticipated future trends and international developments.
