We represent clients involved in product liability cases and related issues on national, regional, and local levels. We have a deep knowledge of product liability litigation and the serious exposure it represents to our clients. Our team is a true partner to our clients, focused on fully understanding the issues involved in each case and developing a focused, responsive strategy to accomplish the goals of the client.
Our attorneys craft creative motion practice, settlement strategies, strategic appeals and trial strategies for our clients involved in product liability matters, from handling a single case on the state level to the national coordination of discovery, development of national trial teams, identification and development of experts in many disciplines, coordination of unique alternative dispute systems, and other creative approaches. We act as national coordinating counsel and national trial counsel for several manufacturers.
We work with corporations and companies of all sizes and on projects of several types including, by way of example, manufacturers involved in the following:
- Chemical Solvents & Plastics
- Construction Equipment
- Consumer Products
- Food Products
- Industrial Equipment
- Material Handling Equipment
- Medical Devices
- Tobacco Products
- Treestand & Hunting Products
- Warranty Litigation
Several of our attorneys are also members of prestigious professional organizations such as the American College of Trial Lawyers, American Board of Trial Advocates, International Association of Defense Counsel, Federation of Defense and Corporate Counsel, and the Product Liability Advisory Council, and have been invited faculty members at IADC’s Trial Academy and the ABA TIPS Trial Academy.
We recognize that sometimes a client’s needs are best served by resolution outside the courtroom. Our creative approaches to alternative dispute resolution vehicles means that we have experience with summary jury trials, mediations, facilitation, case evaluation, formal and informal arbitrations, and other techniques. Our attorneys have received intensive and extensive training in all of these techniques.
We also provide clients with assistance in the area of product liability claims prevention. This can include working with clients on recall and/or retrofit campaigns, warning labels, operators manuals, disclaimers, indemnity agreements, and insurance coverage issues to name a few. Additionally, our attorneys stand ready to assist our clients when a crisis arises involving a product they design, manufacture, or distribute. It is then that our innovation, work ethic, creativity, and knowledge of the law can assist in building a management strategy based on sound legal principals.
We give serious attention to litigation cost factors. Our litigators work closely with clients to ensure that cases are staffed with the best-qualified attorneys and that the client receives the highest quality effective legal services at a competitive cost.
