    Geoffrey defended clients involved in civil litigation throughout his career. Geoffrey tried cases to verdict in both state and federal courts in Connecticut and argued cases before the Connecticut Supreme Court and the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in New York City.

    Geoffrey regularly advises clients involved in toxic tort claims, including claims involving oil spills, water contamination and claims relating to exposure to pollutants and chemicals. Over the past 20 years, his toxic tort practice included the defense of manufacturers and suppliers of products regarding claims asserting exposure to asbestos in Connecticut state and federal courts.

    Although Geoffrey primarily practices in the areas of product liability law, toxic tort and mass-tort litigation, he has experience litigating complex business litigation matters, including premises liability matters, subrogation, construction injury and defect matters, and professional liability lawsuits. Geoffrey represented individual and corporate clients in a broad range of matters, including claims alleging negligence, automobile and trucking liability, municipal liability and law enforcement liability, product liability, professional liability and errors and omissions. In addition, Geoffrey has advised insurance carriers and rendered coverage opinions and defended insurance coverage claims.

    Geoffrey has also dealt with all aspects of alternative dispute resolution throughout his career. He has handled cases which were submitted to both private and court¬-annexed mediations as well as arbitration matters. He has also submitted and presented cases before mediators and arbitrators through the American Arbitration Association pursuant to their rules.
