Asbestos and talc lawsuits continue to fill court dockets around the country. Senior Counsel Syed (Zim) Rizvi of our New York City office recently spoke at the HarrisMartin Publishing conference on asbestos litigation in New Jersey.
The conference overall addressed recent developments and court decisions regarding personal jurisdiction motions, the impact of defendant bankruptcies, pretrial procedures and trial scheduling coming out of the pandemic. The sessions also included discussions of implicit bias and ethics. Zim’s panel looked specifically at best practices for remote depositions. Zim is part of our Mass Torts and Indusry-wide Litigation Practice Group.
