For the past five years, he has been part of a team representing the debtor in one of the nation’s most closely watched asbestos bankruptcy cases. In 2013, Rich assisted in representing the debtor at a trial to determine its aggregate responsibility for thousands of current and future mesothelioma claims, which resulted in a nationally recognized ruling accepting the debtor’s liability estimate of $125 million and rejecting the estimate of representatives for asbestos claimants that exceeded $1 billion. In addition to his work in bankruptcy cases, Rich regularly counsels clients facing nationwide mass tort litigation.
Rich also practices in the area of general commercial litigation. His experiences include helping successfully defend a public company merger and obtaining a published appellate ruling approving his client's Charlotte, North Carolina, real estate development.
