Complimentary White Paper – Dubious Distribution: Asbestos Bankruptcy Trust Assets and Compensation

Dubious Distribution: Asbestos Bankruptcy Trust Assets and Compensation

By Marc Scarcella and Peter Kelso for the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform

Dubious Distribution: Asbestos Bankruptcy Trust Assets and CompensationDubious Distribution: Asbestos Bankruptcy Trust Assets and Compensation, shows that of $40 billion contributed to asbestos trusts between 2004 and 2016, $25 billion remain. In fact, of the 35 asbestos trusts operating as of early 2008, 21 of them are currently paying an average of only 60 percent of what they paid that year. The report also points out that most trusts have no contingency fee caps, and allow plaintiffs’ attorneys to collect 40 percent or more of claims paid out.

This research delves into the details of asbestos trust expenses and claim payment. The paper concludes that the depletion of trust assets will result in the systematic under-compensation of legitimate asbestos victims in the future if left unabated.

CSR Spotlight: Record Year for NY 7th Annual Fundraiser

The New York office hosted our seventh annual fundraiser for the American Cancer Society (ACS) this year; we selected this charity because the battle against cancer is ongoing for many of our friends, family, colleagues, and loved ones of all ages.

The American Cancer Society was founded in 1913 and has since been removing barriers to quality health care by providing transportation to treatment and other cancer-related appointments, access to lodging for patients seeking treatment away from home, and cancer education and screenings—overall averting 2.1 million cancer deaths since 1991.

This year’s event was the most successful one to date! More than 120 people attended and took part in our raffles. Because of the overwhelming generosity of our employees, friends, and family, we raised over $16,000. All proceeds from this record year will go directly to the American Cancer Society.

Thank you to all who participated and donated to this cause for making this year’s event a groundbreaking success for our firm and our CSR team. To donate to the cause, visit the ACS website at the link above.
