In late 2012, the firm’s three named partners, who at the time were each nationally prominent fire litigators at separate firms, convened to discuss the goal of establishing the country’s first national catastrophic fire and explosion law firm. When McCoy Leavitt Laskey opened in April 2013, the founding partners had already collectively spent their entire careers handling fire and explosion cases. Today, with the success of the founders’ growing practices and with the addition of new partners, McCoy Leavitt Laskey’s attorneys have handled well over 2500 such matters, including many of the country’s most iconic and complex fire and explosion cases in recent years.
The level of experience the firm now offers in the legal world of fire and explosion claims has no rival. Almost every day, and certainly every week, in all corners of the United States, you will find a McCoy Leavitt Laskey attorney working elbow to elbow in fire debris with many of the most talented forensic experts in the world. Certain fundamentals override each of the firm’s efforts: searching for the truth, applying proven scientific methods, relying upon judgment honed over the years, and providing practical and efficient solutions for some of our clients’ most pressing problems.
The firm primarily represents product manufacturers, energy companies and insurers. The “MLL” team is highly mobile and accustomed to responding to catastrophe at a moment’s notice.
