Product Liability & Tort Litigation
Only the most experienced representation will do when your business is at risk.
We have a distinguished reputation in product liability litigation based on more than 40 years’ experience successfully defending manufacturers and distributors of a wide variety of products. Our practice is national in scope, including significant wins more recently in difficult jurisdictions such as East Texas, rural West Virginia, Alabama, and South Florida. We handle cases ranging from relatively minor injuries to catastrophic wrongful death and damages claims involving complex legal and factual situations.
We believe in counseling our clients on business practices and processes that are consistent with and integral to a successful product liability defense. We do more than simply respond to litigation filed against our clients. We work closely and proactively with them to design and implement liability prevention programs that significantly reduce the likelihood of future litigation.
By integrating the experience and abilities of our attorneys with the most modern technology and our centralized regional location, our team can provide sophisticated, efficient and effective defense for clients facing product liability cases of every type and size. We also stand ready to vigorously defend our results on appeal.
