MMK’s Toxic Tort/Environmental attorneys have had the benefit of being involved in some of the largest and most complicated Class Actions/Mass Torts, which involved environmental and toxic tort issues including, but not limited to, the Manville Asbestos cases, the tobacco litigation and FEMA formaldehyde litigation. Further, our Toxic Tort/Environmental attorneys have been involved in multiple mold, mildew and lead claims involving residential and commercial properties. With respect to asbestos litigation, our emphasis is on insurance coverage related to long tail exposure cases. We are often involved in other insurance coverage disputes for pollution both on land and in the marine environment.
Melchiode Marks King LLC has diverse practice areas focused on the key industries in the Gulf South. Maritime, construction and insurance are our core, but within those broader categories we have developed related practices. For example, our maritime lawyers frequently handle Longshore and Harbor Workers Compensation Act claims, our construction lawyers litigate architects and engineers professional liability and our insurance experience has evolved into an emphasis on first party property and bad faith litigation. We are dedicated to applying our experience to achieve the best results possible for our clients.
