Test case: asbestos liabilities

We acted in a test case nominated in relation to our client’s asbestos liabilities and which would ultimately impact upon a further 100 claims of a similar nature. The test case was strongly contested. Its determination enabled favourable settlements to be achieved in the other claims at substantial cost savings to our client.
