PRODUCTS: CLASS ACTION, TRADE & INDUSTRY REPRESENTATION
We protect and preserve your brand, product and reputation with our deep industry experience and proven trial lawyers—in and out of the courtroom.
Protecting our clients and their products is our highest priority.
Companies that make products come to our team to avoid disputes or resolve them quickly in order to get back to business.
With a deep understanding of your business and industry, we partner with you proactively to review industry standards and government regulation compliance. We advise on improvements in product testing, warnings and recordkeeping to reduce ongoing litigation and avoidance of future lawsuits.
Litigation is expensive and unpredictable.
Our team controls costs without compromise. We begin with an early case evaluation to form an educated assessment of litigation risks. We staff our cases efficiently using scalable teams and employ state-of-the-art case management tools.
We know how to talk to juries and have the experience to jump in and handle a client’s case at a moment’s notice, regardless of the subject matter.
With extensive experience in class action, multijurisdictional and multidistrict litigation, we have successfully tried high-exposure cases to verdicts in some of the most challenging venues across the country.
Our full-service 24/7 Crisis Response team guides clients through accident investigations and high profile crises.
