IRVINE, Calif., May 18, 2018 – Kenneth Kasdan, founder and managing partner at Kasdan LippSmith Weber Turner LLP, has been awarded the Silver Star Award for Best Plaintiff Attorney at the 25th Annual West Coast Casualty Construction Defect Seminar. The Silver Star Award recognizes an individual who is most accomplished in their area of practice as determined by the over 25,000 members of the construction defect community. West Coast Casualty Service, Inc. is a nationally and internationally recognized leader in the handling of third party construction, construction site accident, and construction defect related claims.
Kasdan is considered one of the nation's leading construction defect authorities, achieving over $1 billion dollars in trials, verdicts, arbitration awards, and settlements for his clients in the Western United States. He has practiced law for over forty years and is the senior partner with Kasdan LippSmith Weber Turner LLP, established in 1992.
Kasdan has been at the forefront of construction defect litigation where he has advanced the intersection of science and technology in the advocacy of construction defect claims. He has helped change building codes to protect homeowners' rights and litigated cases with complex issues involving corrosion of building components, sulfate attack damage to concrete, soil subsidence, water intrusion, and wind-related damage. Extensive litigation and multiple million-dollar verdicts and settlements has resulted in the construction industry modifying many of its procedures to produce better, stronger, and more durable concrete used throughout the Western United States.
Well known in the national legal profession and a sought-after speaker on construction defect litigation, Kasdan is a member of the American Bar Association and the State Bars of California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Hawaii, as well as the Consumer Attorneys of California (CAOC) and construction-related associations such as the American Concrete Institute (ACI) and the International Code Council (ICC).
