The National Asbestos Litigation Conference program provides attendees a deeper understanding of the trends currently driving asbestos litigation and the impact these trends may have on future cases.

Last year, the conference attracted more than 600 professionals representing diverse parties affected by specialty litigation, an increase of 55% since this conference was first launched seven years ago.

"The rapid increase we have seen in attendance over the years is a clear indication that we are focusing on the hottest topics and bringing the right people together," said Lynnsey Perrin, founder and CEO of Perrin Conferences. "John Manning's excellent leadership and extensive experience as National Coordinating Counsel for multiple major products manufacturers makes him invaluable. We are delighted that he again lends his strong support to make this event such a huge success."

John concentrates his practice in products liability, toxic torts, asbestos defense, mass torts, litigation management, food liability, professional liability, pharmaceutical and medical device litigation, environmental litigation, class actions, intellectual property litigation, and commercial and insurance disputes. He directs all aspects of the defense of over 200,000 asbestos lawsuits pending in all 50 states.
