Seeger Weiss co-founder Chris Seeger has been recognized as one of Law.com’s Litigators of the Week by Ross Todd for the more than $6 billion 3M earplug litigation settlement. Seeger, along with co-lead counsel Bryan Aylstock of Aylstock, Witkin, Kreis & Overholtz announced the settlement on Tuesday. Chris Seeger played a crucial role in driving the lengthy four-year litigation forward and negotiating the settlement agreement. Prior results do not guarantee or predict a similar outcome with respect to any future matter.

“While many will remember this as the largest MDL in history, that ended in a more than $6 billion settlement, I’ll remember this for what it really is, justice being served to a corporation who lied to our government and our armed forces,” Seeger said. “While no amount of money or admission of fault will truly compensate for the lifelong injuries suffered by hundreds and thousands of the heroic men and women who fought for this country, I truly believe that as a lawyer I was successful in serving in the best interest of my clients, and holding a powerful corporation truly accountable for the immeasurable harm their greed has caused.”

This recognition is not just an accolade for Chris but a testament to the combined dedication of our team and our commitment to advocating for those who were harmed by 3M’s misconduct. You can read the Q&A here. And you can read more about the settlement here.
