This book is for the busy and ne practitioner who is building their experience and expertise in asbestos claims. It is not written from the perspective of one side or the other. It is intended to neutrally state the position of the law and procedure in relation to dealing with claims of asbestos-related injury and to give some honest, frank and practical guide in doing so. Invariably, asbestos litigation is complex and time-consuming, and as such it is hoped that this practical guide will be a readily available initial source of reference to assist the practitioner who needs to refresh themselves on a certain topic, or to assist the practitioner in providing a core grounding of the key issues likely to be encountered in their caseload.

It has been our privilege to practice in this area of law and it is an even bigger privilege for us to share those experiences and points of understanding with those who read this book. We sincerely hope it provides the type of assistance, and to some degree, re-assurance, that we all need from time to time in our work in this area of litigation.
