Our experience includes representation of clients in the following major industries: Transportation including Automotive, Aviation, Trucking and Industrial & Heavy Equipment, Pharmaceuticals & Medical Devices, Electronics and Appliances, Construction and Building Performance, Propane & Natural Gas, Food, Chemicals & Agriculture and Tobacco among others. In undertaking these representations, we are mindful of the business implications presented when a company’s products are attacked, especially in recurring cases or class action lawsuits. We also are experienced in responding to coordinated attacks through well organized and well advertised adverse counsel. We have developed a number of unbundled services to support coordinated and effective defense of the lifeblood of our clients and their products. These services include our E-Discovery, Case Coordination, Experts & Science, Documents & Discovery Facilities, and Emergency Response teams, as well as our Case Management Facility and our subsidiary FirmLogic. Our experience ranges from acting as local counsel on specific cases to coordinating litigation nationwide. Lawyers in our firm have handled cases in almost every state and in several international forums. Because of the Products Liability group’s national work, we are proficient in the various schemes of tort liability nationwide, giving us an understanding of, and appreciation for, how litigation affects our corporate clients beyond a single case in a single jurisdiction. The group’s lawyers are active in professional liability associations, such as the Product Liability Advisory Council, the Defense Research Institute and the International Association of Defense Counsel.
