Product Liability

Defending your product and reputation.

We have a distinguished reputation in product liability litigation based on more than 40 years’ experience successfully defending manufacturers and distributors of a wide variety of products. Our practice is national in scope, including significant wins more recently in difficult jurisdictions such as East Texas, rural West Virginia, Alabama, and South Florida. We handle cases ranging from relatively minor injuries to catastrophic wrongful death and damages claims involving complex legal and factual situations.

By integrating the experience and abilities of our attorneys with the most modern technology and our centralized regional location, our team can provide sophisticated, efficient and effective defense for clients facing product liability cases of every type and size. We also stand ready to vigorously defend our results on appeal.
