ProductLiability

For businesses that make or sell products–as well as those who deliver services–liability is a critical concern. From the moment an incident occurs, the clock starts, the stakes climb and the risks mount.

Our practice understands the urgency of such situations and helps clients navigate complex and technical issues through services that include:

  • Early assessment claim investigation and containment counseling
  • National and regional case management
  • Strategic litigation services
  • Litigation, trial and appellate representation
  • Counsel on legal aspects of sales contracts, product warnings and labeling, product recalls and CPSC compliance and reporting issues.

The earlier we can be involved, the better the results can be. We strive to learn our client’s business and assist them with the proactive development of rules, policies and procedures to help avoid and minimize damage from litigation. Maintaining a pulse on industry activity and judgments further guides our client-oriented approach. We offer holistic advice that considers the spectrum of potential impact, from warnings and labeling to instructions, public notices, and other communication.

Product liability issues can be an expensive distraction to businesses. Our team acts quickly to identify opportunities for rapid, favorable resolution—whether or not the matter ever goes to trial. Our aggressive investigative mindset combines with decades of deep trial experience across a broad spectrum of industries, making us responsive and reliable partners.
