Products Liability Litigation
For manufacturers, suppliers, marketers and retailers, controversy arises at every stage of the product life-cycle, including product development, collaboration, supply, manufacturing, distribution, licensing, joint-ventures, profit-sharing, and royalty agreements. Our experience can assist regardless of when a dispute occurs in the product cycle.
Our lawyers help avoid disputes from arising in the first place and work directly with companies putting subject matter and industry experience to work at the start to discover potential issues, address them, and avoiding litigation down the road.
Over the decades, new products and theories of liability have emerged supplanting the traditional strict product liability doctrine for manufacturing defects, design defects, and marketing defects. State and federal enforcement can lead to “follow-on” litigation and our experience is well suited to defending against sophisticated new approaches. Our team of trial lawyers has appeared throughout the United States in state and federal courts and administrative agencies and has managed litigation for some of the world’s largest companies.
Our team has been involved in some of the largest litigation and proceedings in the country and has handled complex products litigation for clients on national and regional bases. Our litigation management team adds efficiency, thoroughness and cost savings in formulating and implementing programs to manage litigation using several project-focused strategies.
In addition to our focus on compliance, we bring our litigation experience to bear in defending governmental, competitor and consumer false and deceptive advertising, Lanham Act, and misbranding claims.
