Chris is a vice-chair of the Asbestos Litigation Practice and a member of the Products Liability and General Liability Practices. He represents a broad spectrum of clients including Fortune 500 companies, insurance companies, small businesses, and individuals. Mr. Tauro focuses his practice on the defense of manufacturers, contractors, retailers, suppliers, and premise owners in products liability, toxic/mass tort and general liability litigation. Mr. Tauro has extensive experience in managing client's needs from the investigation through trial. Mr. Tauro's primary goal is to provide clients with solutions to reduce and eliminate risk of liability and exposure/damages. 

In 2007, Mr. Tauro successfully argued and won a landmark decision on a Motion for Summary Judgment based on the Statute of Repose which for the first time in the state eliminated liability in a wrongful death case involving products containing asbestos. Subsequently, in 2019, The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court recognized the Statute of Repose does apply as a defense in asbestos cases involving allegations of personal injury and wrongful death.
