Mr. Tucker has an extended history in active, participatory litigation management.
In the past decade as more and more large corporate entities assume significant retained risk, a need for outside counsel to actively and efficiently investigate, manage and resolve claims and related litigation while restraining both expense and indemnity costs became clear.
Mr. Tucker acted as National Coordinating Counsel for Owens Corning in its asbestos property damage litigation and as Regional Coordinating Counsel and senior trial counsel in the personal injury litigation.
In the course of the overwhelming volume of asbestos litigation, Tucker's firm partnered with Booz Allen Hamilton to develop tactics and strategies by which a client faced with claims and resulting litigation arising out of its course of business would standardize and articulate its position and philosophy to various courts across the country in a uniform, comprehensive and forthcoming manner.
Since 2001, Mr. Tucker has developed management strategies and programs by which corporations with significant SIR's (pharmacy chain, regional financial institution and national/international restaurant companies) manage and resolve their self-insured litigation in an efficient, comprehensive and cost effective manner while protecting the brand.
