Tell us about your biggest client wins this year. The asbestos/talc ovarian cancer case in St. Louis against Johnson & Johnson was [the firm’s] biggest win that year.

[The firm] showed that J&J skewed testing to hide asbestos for decades. The jury awarded $4.7 billion. Subsequently, Reuters independently studied the evidence (documents and testimony) publishing its independent determination that J&J talc possesses asbestos, the report resulting in a double-digit drop in the stock price of J&J.
