Bob Brummond is the managing partner of Foley & Mansfield's Chicago office, and also works in the St. Louis office. Bob focuses his practice on toxic torts and mass tort litigation with an emphasis on asbestos-related cases. He has been involved in personal injury asbestos litigation for more than 24 years. This extensive work in asbestos cases has resulted in successful long-term client relationships, including one in which he served as a client's national coordinating counsel for 12 years involving more than 30,000 cases in 34 states. 

Bob also practices in the firm's Estate, Probate and Trust group, with a litigation focus. Due to his experience and outstanding reputation in probate litigation, the University of Missouri School of Law invited him to lecture at the Fratcher Symposium, an interactive, educational forum for experienced trusts and estates practitioners.

Other areas of Bob's practice include construction defect litigation and commercial litigation. The construction defect litigation ranges from commercial and hospital construction defect claims to multi-residential unit claims involving roofing and cladding issues. His commercial litigation work includes suits for accounting, enforcement of restrictive covenant of employment matters, discovery of asset cases, property damage cases, suits on notes, nuisance cases, replevin cases, rent and possession matters, and breach of contract cases.
