Perry Weitz of Weitz & Luxenberg will co-chair a prestigious Perrin Conferences asbestos-litigation symposium Dec. 2 at the New York Athletic Club in Manhattan.
Eight New York trial and appellate court judges along with one special master are slated to speak at Perrin’s 4th annual “Litigating Asbestos Cases in Today’s Environment, Featuring Insights from the Bench: The Judicial Perspective.”
The much-anticipated day-long event is expected to draw many of nation’s most influential asbestos attorneys. Mr. Weitz makes an appropriate choice of symposium chair — he helped pioneer this highly specialized field and continues to earn recognition as one its most eminent practitioners.
The firm he co-founded is widely acknowledged as a foremost innovator in asbestos litigation, having not long ago won what is thought — at $190 million — to be the largest-ever consolidated asbestos verdict in New York City. For more information, visit the Perrin Conferences website.
