Represented a chemical manufacturer (owned by a Fortune 100 company) when 71 former employees sued the company and 9 other defendants claiming that they were permanently injured by exposure to mercury and chlorine as a result of their work. This case involved claims of intentional injury, conspiracy, and a number of veil-piercing arguments directed at the corporate parent. We deposed dozens of witnesses and defended the deposition of nearly every supervisor who worked at the facility during the past 40 years. Discovery included the production of hundreds of thousands of documents. Our team also successfully briefed a number of complicated issues, not only those addressing liability, but also concerning attorney-client privilege and the work product doctrine. Ultimately, summary judgment was granted on all claims and for all defendants. This judgment was affirmed on appeal by the North Carolina Supreme Court.
