We employ a diverse group of attorneys who are able to provide counsel to our clients for all stages of a business – including start-up, practices and procedures and litigation. While we have successfully handled numerous high profile cases throughout the United States, Brewer & Lormand, PLLC is guided by the principle that no case is too small as every case is important to the individual client. With personalized attention and a legal defense that is tailored to the client’s business, Brewer & Lormand, PLLC employs a unique and effective response to your legal needs.
Class Action & Mass Tort
Class action litigation has increased significantly across a wide range of industries. Plaintiffs lawyers sometimes transform media reports into class actions. These tactics magnify even apparent trivial complaints into ones that cannot be ignored. This trend is an ongoing problem in the business community that is not likely to lessen in the coming years.
We believe in a comprehensive, aggressive approach to such claims and have extensive experience in directly handling class actions and mass tort claims, personal injury and product liability claims. In defending class action litigation, we have experience in all aspects of litigation, including pre-certification discovery, defeating class certifications, and creative, case-specific defense strategies.
Further, we have acted as national counsel coordinating numerous law firms, local counsel, experts, and related proceedings in an effort to provide strong and consistent strategy with a constant eye on cost savings.

We represent clients in the appellate process in a broad range of matters, including licensing issues, personal injury, toxic tort, product liability, medical malpractice and maritime.

We use our knowledge and experience to give our clients effective and efficient representation throughout the appellate phase of litigation. We also advise clients regarding possible outcomes and limits to the appellate process.
Environmental Law & Toxic Tort
Our attorneys have experience defending companies in mass tort, wrongful death and personal injury litigation emanating from chemical releases, as well as in claims of property damage sustained from petrochemical or chemical migration onto land or into groundwater or drinking water.
Toxic tort litigation is a wide-ranging field including employer, executive officer, product and premises liability claims arising from alleged exposures to chemicals and other substances such as asbestos or silica. Due to the nature of these exposures and the long latency periods associated with many associated health issues, toxic tort claims often involve unique legal and medical issues, and Brewer & Lormand, PLLC has the experience needed to represent our clients’ interests in dealing with these issues.

We have successfully handled these types of claims and others for several clients, including high profile cases brought against long-term acute care facilities and nursing homes.
We also have experience handling loss of business income claims, property damage claims (for both personal and business insurance policies) and bad faith claims against insurers for payments related to storm damage. In addition to representing clients in litigation, we provide coverage opinions.
