Rich Worf has represented clients in all phases of civil litigation, and has extensive experience in the area of mass tort bankruptcy. For the past four 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, he 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. Rich has substantial experience regarding asbestos litigation in the United States, as well as mass tort issues more generally. In addition to his work in asbestos bankruptcy cases, he has counseled other clients confronting nationwide mass tort litigation.
