About the Law Firm
For more than 25 years, LK’s personal injury lawyers and wrongful death attorneys have worked to protect the rights of individuals and groups whose lives have been disrupted or cut short due to third-party negligence.
With damage awards among the highest in the nation, our law firm has amassed scores of verdicts in the millions and tens of millions of dollars. Not only have many of these verdicts resulted in some of the largest damage awards of their kind, but they have also yielded an impressive array of landmark decisions.
LK has been a pioneer in representing victims of asbestos exposure. In fact, LK’s mesothelioma lawyers were among those responsible for the elimination of asbestos from the American workplace. Similarly, the firm's lawyers have been at the forefront in the fight against other dangerous products and pharmaceuticals such as Bextra, Vioxx, Depo Provera, DES, and the Dalkon Shield.
Lead Poisoning and Birth Defects
In keeping with our commitment to upholding the rights of children, LK is a leading representative of children exposed to lead paint. Moreover, LK has spearheaded litigation against the semiconductor industry to eliminate the use of ethylene glycol ethers, which have caused birth defects in the children of semiconductor workers. More recently, LK has advocated on behalf of beauticians, whose children were born with severe birth defects resulting from exposure to toxic chemicals in their parents’ workplace.
Medical Malpractice and Construction Accidents
Blending vigorous representation with our investigatory resources, LK represents victims of medical malpractice, as well as construction and highway accidents. To ensure our clients’ rights are protected, LK has, when necessary, instituted insurance coverage disputes, bankruptcy proceedings, and fraudulent transfer actions.
Employment Discrimination Law
LK has made a conscious effort to combat employment discrimination at any juncture. Our lawyers have represented workers who have been the victims of age, race, and gender discrimination. In a recent class action case involving Latino and African American Police Officers, who were the subject of racial discrimination by the New York City Police Department, LK obtained a settlement in excess of twenty million dollars, along with an injunction compelling the City to rectify its practices.
In addition to being one of North America’s most respected law firm’s in the areas of mass tort and product liability, LK is a top tier appellate firm. On a regular basis, LK lawyers file briefs and argue cases before state and federal appellate courts. A significant number of these decisions have resulted in important outcomes that have vindicated the rights of workers and consumers throughout the country.
