Brendan is a partner at the American law firm Phillips & Paolicelli LLP in New York, where he heads the Asbestos & Talc department. One of the leading trial lawyers in the United States in this field, Brendan has blazed new ground in pursuing American product liability lawsuits for international mesothelioma victims. He has won millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for his clients and has lectured extensively in the United States and Europe on asbestos litigation, international product liability and trial advocacy. At the EAF conference, Brendan will present on the globalisation of the asbestos industry, resulting in asbestos products being traded internationally and thereby putting unsuspecting people in many countries at the risk of asbestos exposure. Of course, he will also discuss developments in international product liability.
