Every Mass Tort matter may involve "bet the company" risks, and John Parker Sweeney’s experience with major Product Liability, Environmental and Toxic Tort cases allows him to develop a litigation response tailored to the many variables of each matter. He regularly serves as national counsel, creating and supervising comprehensive defense strategies in Mass Tort cases across the country. Because of the critical advantage provided by his familiarity with state and federal courts in the Mid-Atlantic Region, his regional Mass Tort practice is unsurpassed.  John also has extensive experience in regulatory matters for manufacturers and premises owners, and handles Environmental regulatory compliance and enforcement for commercial and multi-family residential property owners/managers as well as for industrial properties, including petroleum terminals, sand and gravel operations and other heavy industries involving federal or state regulatory agencies, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Maryland Department of Environment. He is experienced in handling Consumer Product Safety reporting and corrective actions before the Consumer Product Safety Commission, and is advising clients on compliance with the far-reaching new requirements of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008.
