Taylor Research Group provides professional research services to law firms and businesses throughout the United States in high stakes environmental, commercial and civil litigation. We offer a variety of research services, including due diligence investigations to identify potentially responsible parties (PRPs) on Superfund or PCB matters to federal, state and local records reviews to understand historical operations and activities at a contaminated site.  We are known for our imaginative research solutions and ability to find the documents and information that assist our clients with complex legal and commercial issues. 

Asbestos Research

Taylor Research Group is one of the premier research companies for asbestos litigation. In our research, we regularly identify the manufacturers of boilers, turbines, pumps, valves, condensers, distillers, turbo-generators and other machinery and equipment aboard U.S. Navy, Coast Guard and Maritime Commission vessels. We also are able to frequently determine through available archival records if asbestos or asbestos-containing insulating material was present in any of the machinery aboard a particular vessel and where that machinery was located on each vessel. Finally, we regularly retrieve personal diaries and muster rolls, proving when a certain individual was aboard a ship and identifying their shipmates.
