Bill develops creative and practical solutions to help companies identify and manage risks, regulatory burdens, and potential liabilities throughout strategic planning and litigation.
Bill’s practice focuses on two areas.
First, he represents companies who may assume liability due to the potential use, sale, release, or disposal of potentially dangerous material or products in mass tort cases, class actions, environmental litigation, accident investigations, and for related insurance coverage issues.
Second, he helps companies comply with regulatory requirements and minimize potential risk from the sale, use, release, or disposal of chemicals, bio-engineered systems, and bio-technology. Bill advises corporations who may wish to register products or who seek regulatory approvals under a number of state and federal laws including the Toxic Substances Control Act, Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act, and the federal Clean Water Act. In addition, Bill draws upon his broad experience to help companies manage risk and seek insurance coverage for products and processes.
In both litigation and regulatory matters, Bill works with medical doctors, toxicologists, epidemiologists, scientists, engineers, and other experts to put potential risks into context by translating technical arguments into “real world” common sense solutions.
