Weitz & Luxenberg co-founder Perry Weitz will speak at Perrin Conferences’ seventh annual Cutting-Edge Issues in Asbestos Litigation Conference on March 6-7, 2017, at The Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.
The prestigious litigation conference is known for attracting distinguished leaders and influential talent in the legal industry for a discussion on the latest developments in asbestos litigation. Each year, it brings together scores of plaintiffs’ and defense attorneys, judges, insurance professionals, and in-house counsel from around the nation for a series of balanced presentations that feature a wide range of perspectives.
Mr. Weitz is a seasoned Perrin Conferences participant and is consistently recognized as one of the most prominent asbestos litigators. He served as co-chair of the annual New York Asbestos Litigation Conference in December 2016 and every year since 2011.
At the March conference, Mr. Weitz will speak on two panels: New York Litigation Update and The Top Emerging Trends in Asbestos Litigation. His landmark legal triumphs make Mr. Weitz a much-in-demand panelist, the firm said.
Mr. Weitz co-founded Weitz & Luxenberg in 1986 and since then has been a pioneer in asbestos litigation — a field known for being highly specialized. By focusing his legal practice on personal injury cases involving mesothelioma and asbestos exposure, Mr. Weitz has personally secured more than a half-billion dollars in compensation for clients who had contracted asbestos-related diseases due to the negligence of others.
Weitz & Luxenberg, the law firm that Mr. Weitz jointly built, is now among the biggest names worldwide when it comes to mass-tort personal-injury litigation. Mr. Weitz oversees the legal powerhouse of more than 500 lawyers, paralegals, and support professionals. Together, they expertly handle cases in mesothelioma and asbestos exposure, defective drugs and medical devices, environmental pollution, consumer protection, personal injury, and medical malpractice.
To date, Weitz & Luxenberg has won more than $17 billion in verdicts and settlements for clients. Mr. Weitz is personally responsible for more than $7 billion.
