Referral & Co-Counsel Opportunities
As one of the first and only plaintiff trial law firms in the country dedicated exclusively to the preparation and filing of economic loss claims arising out of man made disasters (e.g. BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill claims) and violations of environmental laws and regulations (e.g. Volkswagen emissions defeat device scandal), The Law Office of Thomas L. Young, P.A. is uniquely positioned to assist the clients of Certified Public Accountants and referring law firms.
This complex practice requires the application of concepts, procedures and protocols not typically found in any one law firm or accounting office. For instance, successful oil spill claim practitioners must bring together professionals in trial and appellate law, accounting, financial analysis, logistics, and information technology. Missing any one of these critical components will likely lead to poor client management resulting in the failure to maximize claim values, outright claim denials, and the possibility of malpractice.
The preparation and filing of claims under the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 is only the first of many steps our professionals follow when seeing claims through to payment. What is typically advertised by defendants as a claimant-friendly, fair and non-contentious claim review exercise often devolves into a months or even years long slog.
Procedures and policies change constantly. Court orders are handed down. Deadlines move. Incompleteness notices and other mundane requests from adjusters can easily overwhelm a moonlighting law firm or accountant.
Our team, led by attorney Tom Young, includes dedicated professionals with advanced degrees in accounting and finance. Additionally, Mr. Young is the only plaintiff trial lawyer in the Tampa Bay area with membership in the Joint Prosecution Group in MDL-2179, In re Deepwater Horizon.
We have reviewed thousands of businesses for eligibility and have filed hundreds of claims totaling hundreds of millions of dollars in value. And while past results do not guarantee future performance, we have successfully handled numerous appeals.
Our clients include individuals; dozens of Fortune 500 entities, car dealers and other small businesses; non-profit concerns and local governments. The volume of our practice allows us to enjoy efficiencies and a depth of knowledge and experience that those with smaller portfolios simply do not possess.
If you have tired of dealing with the complexities and uncertainties of the environmental loss claims process, or no longer wish to litigate cases pursuant to the Oil Pollution Act of 1990, the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act or other legislation, we would welcome the opportunity to relieve your burden. Our co-counsel arrangements can be structured in ways that ensure your continued financial success, while at the same time freeing your capital, human and monetary, to dedicate to your core practice.
