About Steven Kazan

Steven Kazan, the Founding, Senior, and Managing Principal, has been a prominent figure in asbestos litigation for more than four decades. In 1974, he initiated his advocacy for asbestos victims by filing his inaugural case, subsequently representing numerous injured workers and their families in legal proceedings. His primary focus has been championing the rights of workers afflicted with mesothelioma in third-party asbestos lawsuits against manufacturers, contractors, distributors, and premises owners. Additionally, Mr. Kazan has provided legal representation for individuals suffering from asbestos lung cancer and debilitating asbestosis.

His expertise has been recognized by the U.S. Trustee, leading to appointments by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to participate as a member or counsel for victim members in various asbestos bankruptcy reorganizations. Notable cases include Amatex, Carey Canada, Celotex, H.K. Porter, Babcock & Wilcox, Armstrong World Industries (AWI), W.R. Grace, North American Refractories Company (NARCO), Federal-Mogul, Kaiser Aluminum, Global Technologies (GIT), ACandS, ARTRA, Owens Corning/Fibreboard, Plibrico, T&N, U.S. Gypsum, Combustion Engineering, the Muralo Company, Congoleum, Flintkote Company, Special Electric, ABB Lummus Global, T H Agriculture & Nutrition (THAN), Leslie Controls, Garlock, General Motors, the Budd Company, D-II, Energy Future Holdings (EECI/Ebasco), Pittsburgh Corning Trust (PCC), Bestwall (formerly Georgia Pacific), and Thomas Dee Engineering. For Bestwall and Thomas Dee Engineering, Mr. Kazan serves as the Asbestos Creditors’ Committee (ACC) Chair, and for Garlock, he holds the position of co-chair of the ACC.
