Many of our clients design, manufacture and sell products, and sometimes people are hurt by those products. There is a massive industry—the plaintiffs’ bar—whose mission is to turn these injuries, big or small, into lawsuits. With the intrusiveness of the discovery of electronically stored information, and the overall disruptiveness a lawsuit can have on business operations, many clients are not comfortable using the lawyers engaged by their insurance company.
We have represented clients in repetitive cases (same product injuring different plaintiffs) or even single cases (a one-time injury). We represent clients who only recently sold the product that is the subject of the suit, as well as clients who sold the product decades ago.
We represent clients in both state and federal court. We’ve prevailed many times on summary judgment and at trial. And we’ve settled early and cheaply when doing so was the right strategic move for the client.
In addition to our trial work, we counsel clients on FDA regulatory compliance, including post-approval issues such as labeling changes, adverse event reporting, good manufacturing requirements and promotional activities. We also provide crisis management counseling on product recalls, government investigations and similar issues.
