Weitz & Luxenberg: Three Decades of Elite Legal Work
Weitz & Luxenberg, P.C. was formed by partners Perry Weitz and Arthur Luxenberg. Founded with the goal of providing top-flight legal services to clients injured by negligent companies and people, the firm took root in New York and immediately propelled Weitz and Luxenberg to success, earning them a reputation as public champions. That reputation remains strong and is still growing today.
Weitz & Luxenberg – A Commitment to Your Success
At W&L, we consider ourselves to be among the best law firms in the world at taking a client’s case and achieving the result they want. There are hundreds of firms that practice the same kind of law that we do, but very few who do as well for their clients.
W&L and its top-flight litigators have been recognized with dozens of awards and recognitions that reflect the elite level of our legal work. Our lawyers are regularly recognized with “Best Lawyers” and “Super Lawyers” distinctions, honors that are handed out by legal publications. Our lawyers also serve on the leadership committees of some of the largest multidistrict litigations in the nation and the committees of multiple asbestos bankruptcy trusts.
One of W&L’s first major legal successes involved winning a multimillion verdict on behalf of 36 men who worked for the Brooklyn Navy Yard. It had been an important shipbuilding facility since before World War II, but was filled with dangerous asbestos-laden products. Hundreds of workers were exposed, and years later many came to W&L for representation.
In a landmark trial, W&L won a $75 million verdict for the men of the Brooklyn Navy Yard, sending a historic message to the asbestos industry and ensuring that their clients could move forward free of financial worries.
Growing Every Day
W&L has continued to build on this tradition of success, growing as a firm both in size and resources. W&L today has more than 85 lawyers working in world-class facilities located in New York, Los Angeles, and Cherry Hill, N.J., outside of Philadelphia. (Contact our offices).
W&L’s practice areas have expanded to include litigations for unsafe medicines and defective medical devices, negligence and personal injury cases, environmental law, consumer protection and a host of other complicated litigation areas in addition to asbestos law. The firm has helped secure landmark results in each of these areas, from a record-setting $190 million asbestos verdict in 2013, to a string of multimillion dollar verdicts and settlements on behalf of clients injured by defective drugs and medical devices, to the $7.8 billion settlement with BP in the Gulf Oil Spill litigation.
A Trusted Partner
W&L has evolved into one of the most comprehensive and resource-rich plaintiff’s firms in the nation, with the ability to provide elite legal services across a broad spectrum of practices.
