Founded in 1986 by partners Perry Weitz and Arthur Luxenberg, Weitz & Luxenberg is a national law firm with strong New York roots.
One of our earliest victories was a $75 million verdict for Brooklyn Navy Yard workers exposed to asbestos. While the case cemented the firm as a leader in asbestos litigation across America, it is also an enduring example of the firm’s longtime advocacy for the working men and women of New York.
The Weitz & Luxenberg Building at 700 Broadway, former home to the National Audubon Society, was declared a New York City Landmark in 1999. Designed in the late 1800s by George B. Post, who designed the New York Stock Exchange and some of America’s first skyscrapers, it was renovated as New York’s first “green building” a hundred years later. It stands as a physical symbol of Weitz & Luxenberg’s commitment to the people who shaped New York’s history and our commitment to its future.(1) (2)
For a hit-and-run victim paralyzed from the chest down. The owner of the car that struck our client claimed it had been stolen. An investigation showed his son had been driving it.
A $75 million verdict for a couple sickened after decades of asbestos exposure. The award for Marlena and Ed Robaey is the largest single case asbestos verdict ever for Weitz & Luxenberg.
A $2.5 billion settlement for thousands of patients whose DePuy hip implants failed and were removed prior to August 31, 2013. The standard base payment was $250,000 per patient.
