“This group maintains an active litigation practice and makes an impression in several important fields including products liability...Clients are pleased with the ‘technologically savvy lawyers’ who ‘react quickly and consistently produce good results.’”
— Chambers USA
Those that design, make, sell or distribute products in today’s economy face exposure to multiple sources of liability that threaten their business. There is no longer a run-of-the-mill product liability claim as the law in each state seems to change with every new case in an environment of ever-developing governmental regulations. In today’s changing, complex litigation landscape, you need counsel who is adept at navigating the intricacies of product liability litigation.
Having represented clients in hundreds of product liability cases across a range of industries, our preeminent product liability litigation attorneys know the ins and outs of defending clients’ interests. We vigorously defend manufacturers, designers, distributors, and individuals against product liability and mass tort suits, including toxic tort and various environmental disputes, matters arising from aviation disasters, accidents, and incidents, claims involving drugs and medical devices and lawsuits arising from alleged defects in equipment and vehicles. Clients engage us in discrete suits, large complex litigation, multi-district litigation, and class-action lawsuits, as well as serving national counsel on multiple, related cases.
We understand that the same strategy does not work for every client, or even every product for the same client. From the beginning of each engagement, we focus on your business goals and then work with you to be sure our strategy meets those goals. Whether your objective is to defend the efficacy of your product or achieve a quick and final resolution, or something in between, we have the creativity and experience to help you reach that end-point. And we will continue to work to achieve your goals after trial, as we have extensive appellate experience in federal and state courts across the country.
