We help to set legal precedent and establish law that benefit the food, pharmaceutical, chemical and petrochemical industries, developing the creative, cost-effective solutions our clients want.
Our clients have experienced an outstanding history of loss control as they work with us to develop a reputation that discourages the filing of claims.
We have resolved numerous environmental and complex toxic tort cases without claim payments and have successfully represented clients in matters involving the health effects of products. We also defend against matters concerning California’s Proposition 65 brought by both private litigants and the State of California involving products.
Our exceptional record of cases tried to verdict or judgment complements our success in resolving cases by dispositive motion, extracting clients from unnecessary litigation in the early stages. We’re also adept at negotiating settlements and working collaboratively with other defense counsel in multiparty cases.
We partner with in-house and consulting experts who assist with the technical and medical aspects of cases, and we have built an extensive database of medical literature and transcripts of expert testimony from trials and depositions from which our clients benefit extensively.
