Toxic Tort Liability Attorney Joins White and Williams
White and Williams LLP is pleased to welcome Christopher DiMuro as a partner in the firm’s Philadelphia and New Jersey offices. DiMuro joins the firm from Patton Boggs LLP as a member of the Toxic Torts and Environmental Product Liability Group.
While at Patton Boggs, DiMuro worked as a lead science counsel representing the City of New York and its contractors with the defense of more than 10,000 personal injury cases brought on behalf of those that participated in rescue, recovery, and debris removal efforts in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center. He was also an integral part of the team that reached the historic $800 million settlement of the WTC litigation.
“Christopher’s background and breadth of experience make him a perfect fit for the firm’s existing Toxic Torts and Environmental Product Liability Group,” said Patricia Santelle, Chair of the firm. Adds Robert Devine, Chair of the Litigation Department, “Christopher’s lead trial lawyer role successfully representing manufacturers and employers throughout the United States further enhances the group’s growing reach providing counseling and representation at trial throughout the region and nationally.”
During his more than 25 years of practice, DiMuro has specialized in defending complex tort and product liability claims, providing comprehensive litigation counseling to clients engaged in a variety of commercial disputes, consumer class actions, healthcare qui tam actions, and employment matters involving breach of non-compete clauses and non-disclosure agreements. He also has conducted a number of large scale internal corporate investigations and compliance audits in response to governmental inquiries and subpoenas.
“We are pleased to have Christopher join White and Williams,” said Thomas Goutman, Chair of the Toxic Torts and Environmental Product Liability Group. “His experience handling complex litigation in both a historic settlement and also recurring tort and product liability claims adds depth and experience to the services we provide our clients.”
