Our Product Liability Litigation practice area attorneys have decades of experience in product liability litigation and pre-litigation matters. Our attorneys defend product liability cases on a local, regional, and national scale in trial and appellate courts. Our attorneys serve as national coordinating counsel, national defense liaison counsel, lead counsel, and local counsel, and have partnered with in-house counsel and local counsel nationwide to coordinate and manage thousands of pattern litigation cases. Our experience is critical for these cases, which often involve complex scientific allegations, catastrophic injuries and wrongful death claims, and high-dollar damages.
Whether the litigation stems from mass litigation, pattern litigation, class actions, multi-district litigation, or individual actions, our attorneys know that a successful strategy is one that is tailored to the client and cost effective. Our experience involves a wide range of products, including aviation, automotive, heavy equipment, medical devices, drugs and pharmaceutical products, asbestos, silica, mass and toxic torts, pesticides, lead, benzene, tobacco, and other consumer and industrial products. Our attorneys work seamlessly with their support staff – which includes paralegals, nurses, and information technology personnel – to implement the complex processes and technologies required for these cases in a cost-effective manner.
