Whitfield & Cox, Bryson Law and Mason LLP Agree to Merge
We are pleased to announce that Whitfield & Cox, Bryson Law and Mason LLP will combine effective January 2, 2012 to form Whitfield Bryson & Mason LLP. The merger will create a single firm of 10 attorneys representing plaintiffs in class actions, mass torts and individual actions in courts throughout the United States.
The new firm brings together three firms with decades of experience representing plaintiffs. Whitfield & Cox has for more than 15 years represented plaintiffs and has recovered tens of millions of dollars for victims of mining accidents, auto and truck accidents, medical malpractice and other negligent conduct throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Bryson Law is recognized nationally as a leading construction negligence law firm and has recovered tens of millions of dollars for homeowners and homeowner associations throughout the United States. Mason LLP has for the last ten years exclusively represented plaintiffs in class actions and mass torts and has obtained settlements totaling more than $1 billion in a variety of contexts, including consumer fraud, toxic torts, civil rights and antitrust price fixing.
The new firm combines the resources of offices located in Washington, D.C., Raleigh, N.C., and Madisonville, Kentucky. By expanding the firm's geographic footprint and increasing staff, Whitfield Bryson & Mason expects to be well-positioned to serve its clients and litigate complex litigation throughout the Mid-Atlantic, Southeast and across the country.
"Whitfield Bryson & Mason with its depth of experienced trial attorneys and class action litigators will be uniquely positioned to drive complex cases to trial or settlement," said Gary E. Mason, the Managing Partner of Whitfield Bryson & Mason. "Modern business practices continue to create ever larger scams, frauds and accidents. We have the people, skills and resources necessary to see that justice prevails."
Attorneys from Whitfield Bryson & Mason presently represent hundreds of homeowners with homes constructed with Chinese drywall, hundreds of members of a class certified against Louisiana-Pacific in connection with failed trimboard, homeowners whose houses have been damaged due to mining subsidence, assistant managers of Rite-Aid who allege they are owed overtime pay, and numerous other victims of accidents, defective products, scams and frauds.
