Torts wizard Mark Lanier has just hired six lawyers for his Houston-based asbestos litigation group, and plans to hire at least six more. Lanier says his firm, which now numbers 40 lawyers, is busier than ever with product liability and commercial plaintiffs work. "When times are rough, for our little niche that means more business," he said. Lanier also said he's thinking about expanding his New York-based pharmaceutical litigation group, thanks to the Supreme Court's ruling in Wyeth v. Levine.
