Representation of Manufacturers in Asbestos Case

We obtained summary judgment for Neles-Jamesbury and Metso Automation in an asbestos case set for trial in Knoxville in September 2016. We successfully argued that the Plaintiff had failed to identify our client’s product and could not proceed against our client under any legal theory of liability. Attorney Jessie Zeigler argued the motion and John Dawson led the briefing.

Metso Corporation is an industrial company in the mining and aggregates industries and in the flow control business. Metso is listed on the NASDAQ OMX Helsinki, Finland. Neles-Jamesbury, Inc. and Metso Automation are subsidiaries of Metso Corporation.
