Wilson Elser’s defense of the chemical industry spans a quarter of a century. From its earliest roots, Wilson Elser has defended Fortune 100 chemical and petrochemical companies around the world that manufacture, distribute and sell solvents, adhesives, paints, volatile organic compounds and aromatic hydrocarbons. Our lawyers have creatively and successfully defended the most complex and sophisticated products and accompanying warnings. Whether the issue is a recent emergent hydrogen sulfide exposure or a latent benzene exposure dating back to the 1960s, Wilson Elser is prepared to provide the historic context in a state-of-the-art defense while aggressively applying the protections that today’s regulatory compliance offers to our clients. We can efficiently manage complex data and information and we enjoy long-standing relationships with the world’s leading experts.

While litigation serves as the cornerstone of our chemicals practice, Wilson Elser provides many other services to the industry, including hands-on support through our rapid response teams, accident and emergency preparation through our OSHA support and compliance teams, e-discovery and record retention consulting. Our Toxic & Environmental practice has members in every office ready to coordinate services and aid our chemical industry clientele at a moment’s notice.
