Dave Stratmann

Senior Counsel

St. Louis
314 552 6110 direct

Dave represents railroads and major manufacturers in environmental and occupational exposure litigation throughout the Midwest and across the country.

He has extensive experience in cases involving alleged upper extremity and musculoskeletal disorders, including carpal tunnel syndrome, spinal disorders, and other orthopedic conditions. Dave has an equal depth of experience in cases alleging exposure to toxic substances — including asbestos — in a number of workplace settings and, in particular, actions involving the Federal Employees Liability Act.

For one national railroad, Dave has managed the systemwide handling of mass tort cases involving asbestos, diesel exposure, creosote, silica, and welding fumes. In this role, Dave investigates claims, deposes plaintiffs, responds to extensive discovery requests, evaluates medical evidence, and helps clients prepare for their own testimony. He also works with national medical and scientific experts to distill and analyze medical and technical evidence. Drawing on his litigation experience and his direct knowledge of the railroad and its systemwide operations, Dave has successfully settled cases before and during trial, and spearheaded methods for the large-scale resolution of exposure claims.

Dave also has represented financial services clients, particularly securities brokers and banks, in proceedings in state and federal trial courts and appellate courts.
