The chemical industry spent millions to cover up just how dangerous asbestos exposures were.

The National Law Journal has again distinguished Baron and Budd on its annual list of Top 100 Verdicts (2012). Attorneys John Langdoc and Christine Tamer achieved a $48 million victory after exposing Union Carbide, a subsidiary of Dow Chemical, as negligent in a California man’s mesothelioma diagnosis (Bobbie Izell, et al. v. Union Carbide Corp., et al., Los Angeles County, Case No. 4674.). Langdoc and Tamer stood for the patient and his family. The California settlement represents the single largest national mesothelioma verdict in 2012.
