Environmental and Toxic Tort Litigation

Clayton Utz has specialist expertise in the defence of environmental and toxic tort litigation, advising government and corporate clients on a broad range of hazardous products and toxic agents. Our lawyers are part of Australia's leading Litigation and Dispute Resolution and Product Liability practices and have extensive experience in dealing with the medical and scientific complexities of toxic products, providing advice on tort defence, litigation strategies and risk management.

Our toxic torts lawyers represent manufacturers and end-users of hazardous products in the defence of complex litigation, often in class action and multi-plaintiff claims. We have acted in litigation involving pharmaceutical and agricultural products, asbestos, chemical poisoning, mould, dust diseases, toxic waste, and microwave technology.

Few Australian law firms have the niche experience or expertise to advise clients on both the legal and scientific complexities of toxic torts. Our lawyers include a member from an internationally-recognised product liability practice, and many hold dual qualifications in areas including chemistry, biochemistry, toxicology, pharmacology and physiology. This capability means that our lawyers quickly recognise and understand the critical scientific issues in each matter, making our service more cost-effective and efficient.
