I’m not afraid to run to the fire, as they say. I think that comes from experience: I’ve spent more than 30 years in damage control, resolving crises, and helping my clients manage emergencies and incidents – if – or when they arise.
Marilyn Cayce helps her clients recover from disasters: hurricanes, workplace accidents, fires and explosions, chemical spills and releases, and more. She defends multi-district litigation and class actions and litigates first-party defense and insurance claims. She guides clients through the response and recovery process in regulatory investigations, helping them rebuild their businesses, operations, and reputations. Marilyn also negotiates settlements and ensures compliance with post-accident regulatory and legal obligations.
Representing clients in the insurance, trucking, maritime, and manufacturing industries, Marilyn has a keen understanding of what keeps her clients up at night. She knows litigation hinges on the details of each case, and this informs her courtroom strategy, making sure to dot every ‘i’ and cross every ‘t’ in considering the angles at play.
For more than 30 years, Marilyn has litigated complex commercial and civil litigation lawsuits: transportation, pharmaceutical, medical malpractice, tobacco, products liability, personal injury and other matters, as well as deep water offshore contribution and indemnity claims. She draws upon that experience to mentor her junior colleagues to develop the skills they need for courtroom success.
Marilyn keeps her hard hat and steel-toed boots in a “go bag” in her office, ready to visit accident sites to speak with onsite supervisors, understand responsibilities, protect employees, and manage authorities and regulators. Clients count on Marilyn’s determination and commitment to their success. They know she cares about the results she gets, and most of all, about helping them meet their financial and strategic objectives.
