Foley & Mansfield today announced that Erika L. Muse has joined its NYCAL defense team, representing product and equipment manufacturers, distributors, and premises owners entangled in complex asbestos litigation.  

Experienced in handling all aspects of New York City Asbestos Litigation, Muse was a member of the trial team which obtained a rare 2016 NYCAL defense verdict. Licensed in New York, she is a member of the American, New York and New York Women’s Bar Associations. Prior to joining Foley & Mansfield, Muse was an associate in the NYC office of Gordon & Rees.

Foley & Mansfield is a national defense firm with offices in 13 U.S. cities. Firm attorneys have successfully defended thousands of asbestos cases nationwide and have tried numerous multiparty asbestos cases to defense verdicts. The firm recently moved its New York office to lower Manhattan to accommodate recent growth, and hired Stephen Novakidis as lead trial attorney for the firm’s NYCAL litigation. The firm will continue to expand its NYC operations in 2018.
