Bridgestone Firestone – National Counsel

For over thirty years, Herrick has served as regional counsel in New York and New Jersey for Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC and its predecessors in connection with claims involving tires, rims, roofing materials, children's car seats, retail stores and employment matters. Since the company's recall of tires equipped on Ford Explorer vehicles in 2000, Herrick has acted with a small group of attorneys as National Counsel for the company and, in that capacity, has represented the company in hundreds of litigations pending around the country. Additionally, Firestone looks to Herrick for counsel and advice in crisis management and prevention. Summing up the relationship with the firm, the company's General Counsel stated "In the two decades we've worked with them, Herrick has proven to be the rare combination of top notch trial lawyers with solid business skills who know as much about presenting evidence to a jury as they do about risk management and cost containment."
