Heyl Royster has done it all in the defense of toxic tort lawsuits – Asbestos, Benzene, Diacetyl/Popcorn Lung, Silica, Manganese/Welding Rods, Vinyl Chloride, Environmental and Occupational Toxins. You name it, we’ve defended it. The firm’s most distinguished lawyers, like Kent Plotner and Chris Larson, have been expertly shielding companies and their insurers from onslaught and expense for decades since the advent of mass lawsuits in the nation’s most consistently troubled jurisdictions in Illinois (Cook County, Madison County, McLean County, St. Clair County) and Missouri (City of St. Louis). Now, with the benefit of their continued guidance and experience, Heyl Royster proudly announces its ability to bring fresh insight and innovative solutions through its newly appointed practice Co-Chairs.
