Sean provides solutions for clients.

Sean became a litigator out of a passion for strategy and for building a well-constructed case. He has focused his practice on asbestos and other toxic tort litigation from the beginning of his career, with additional experience in complex commercial litigation. Sean has served on national coordinating counsel teams for multinational companies and has extensive experience defending clients in notoriously difficult jurisdictions—including at numerous trial starts and mediations in trial threat jurisdictions.

After more than 15 years in the field, Sean has worked with most of the plaintiff firms prominent in New England and has built significant trust among the toxic tort legal community. At Husch Blackwell, Sean serves as an integral part of the national coordinating counsel team for multiple major clients. His primary focus is asbestos litigation, and he takes a highly strategic view of a case from initial analysis forward, considering the client’s and opposing counsel’s historical performance, the jurisdiction’s verdict history, and the defenses and risks inherent in each individual case, determining how to position the client for the best result possible.

Sean previously served in the general counsel’s office of a multinational lighting company, where he saw firsthand the competitive advantage of solid legal strategies. He understands the pressures in-house legal offices face, he understands how catastrophic it can be when litigation goes wrong, and he understands that clients need solutions from their outside counsel, not additional problems. A resolution-focused attorney, Sean’s aim is to always bring clients proactive strategies that will position them for success.
