Areas of focus:


Since the firm's inception, Bates White has been a market leader in mass tort valuation, liability forecasting, and estimation. We have developed, refined, and redefined the approaches that courts and industry leaders recognize as the market standard.

With decades of experience across hundreds of engagements, we lead the industry in analyzing complex mass tort data. Our evaluation and modeling experience spans an array of mass torts, including asbestos, talc, opioids, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), food additives, defective products, medical devices, and abuse. This extensive experience has led us to develop advanced proprietary modeling tools, databases, and sophisticated data analysis methods that we use to help clients make better decisions about issues impacting litigation. Our unparalleled experience and proprietary tools allow us to provide clients with a roadmap for the implications and risks associated with their decision-making.

Bates White’s team includes experts with backgrounds in economics, accounting, finance, mathematics, statistics, bankruptcy, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, and public policy. Clients come to us for a wide variety of mass tort and liability valuation services ranging from preliminary assessments of potential liability to formal expert reports and testimony.

The practice has been at the forefront of mass tort modeling for decades, building on Charles Bates’ experience since the 1990s developing premier asbestos-related models used in litigation. Bates White has led the way integrating insights on how financial incentives drive mass tort litigation. Our team focuses on modeling the actual claim generation process to better forecast expenditures and liabilities.

At Bates White, we pride ourselves on delivering a high-quality experience to our clients. We are a passionate, collaborative team dedicated to helping clients discover the best solutions to their most pressing issues.
