ENVIRONMENTAL AND TOXIC TORT COVERAGE
Rebar Bernstiel attorneys are nationally recognized leaders in the field of environmental coverage. Besides serving as MDL and National Coordinating Counsel on environmental matters for numerous insurers, our lawyers have substantial experience and unparalleled success handling asbestos, climate change, benzene, coal ash, hydrofracking, mold, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, silica and other toxic and chemical particulates.
As a result of our expertise in environmental coverage issues, Rebar Bernstiel attorneys have been featured speakers at some of the insurance industry’s most prestigious events including the annual meetings of DRI, the Institutes, PLUS, The CPCU Society, ABA/TIPS, and the San Francisco Board of Marine Underwriters. In 2010-12, we were counsel in the landmark environmental case Steadfast v. AES. Additionally, an Rebar Bernstiel attorney was the only non-scientist asked to present at last year’s annual meeting of the American Chemical Society—the largest scientific body in the world.
