Our product liability lawyers have handled some of the toughest, most complicated and prolonged litigation in the history of the field.
We often represent manufacturers, distributors and suppliers in product defect and toxic tort claims in state and federal courts, as well as before arbitration and mediation panels in the U.S. and abroad. Our experience spans a number of industries, including automotive, aviation, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, chemicals, consumer products and construction materials, among many others, with a strong focus on "pattern" or repeat allegation cases, including complex multi-party and class action litigation.
We’re known for trying cases, but we can also help prevent things from going that far. We often work with management and in-house counsel to devise crisis management, document retention and internal audits programs that help detect and manage risk. We can help you assess your exposure, find non-litigation alternatives, and if necessary, to litigate it fiercely. Along the way, we’ll help you analyze complex factual and legal issues, evaluate and choose the best strategies, and execute those strategies effectively.
We also have an extensive network of resources to draw on, including public relations partners, litigation support services and expert witnesses. Our lawyers are actively involved in the Product Liability Advisory Council (including serving on the Council’s Executive Committee), the Product Liability Committee of the American Bar Association, the New Jersey State Bar Association Product Liability Section, the Defense Research Institute and are frequent authors and lecturers on product liability issues.
