Ethan Trull is vice-chair of the firm’s litigation department. He represents clients in complex litigation involving commercial disputes and product liability claims, often brought as class, multi-district or aggregated actions.
As the former head of litigation for a Fortune 20 corporation, I bring significant in-house perspective to my service as outside counsel. I understand the imperatives to provide counsel of the highest quality, deliver impeccable client service and be vigilant with regard to budget and cost. I often discuss these priorities with clients, and advise in house legal departments on case management, department management and the use of alternative fee arrangements.
I represent clients in a broad range of commercial disputes with competitors, customers and suppliers. I have experience in securities fraud cases, price-fixing and antitrust actions and false advertising litigation including allegations of Lanham Act violations. Frequently, these disputes involve complex intellectual property issues.
I act as national and regional defense counsel in class action lawsuits, with particular focus on medical devices and supplies and toxic torts. This involves assessing potential exposure across jurisdictions, developing strategies for triage and settlements and adapting litigation strategies as matters progress.
