The national defense firm of Foley & Mansfield is pleased to announce that Timothy J. Ferguson has re-joined the Firm as a partner in its Miami office after spending nearly two years on the trial team at Fowler White Burnett. Ferguson focuses his practice in the defense of complex liability matters including products, toxic tort, construction, premises, personal injury, and medical malpractice.
Ferguson originally joined Foley & Mansfield in January of 2010, and was named to its partnership in January of 2012. He returns as the Firm continues to expand capabilities in both its Miami office and recently established Tampa Bay office. The Firm currently has 16 offices across the country.

He has successfully defended claims alleging exposure to asbestos, benzene, radiation, chemical release, and mold. In the construction arena, he has successfully represented and defended construction defect litigation claims on behalf of architects, mechanical engineers, and various subcontracting trades in both residential/condominium buildings and commercial buildings, including cases involving multi-level post tension structures.
