From class actions to extensive involvement with e-discovery / ESI issues.
Our litigation experience includes the numerous types of product liability claims such as design defects, manufacturing defects, breach of express and implied warranties, defective or negligent warnings, false, misleading or deceptive advertising covering death, injury, and property damage matters across a wide variety of products, including: construction and mining equipment, railroad equipment, cranes and aerial devices, on-highway and marine engines, power generators, power tools, pharmaceuticals and medical devices, automotive products, consumer products, and recreational equipment. In the product liability context we have litigated several class actions and had extensive involvement with e-discovery/ESI issues.
We have developed a protocol that can be tailored to virtually any type of case, with a focus on the core elements of early inspections, investigation and case assessment; embracing the company’s knowledge and expertise (and usually working as closely with company engineers as company lawyers); the careful vetting and development of outside expert witnesses with tightly defined roles; and a targeted, value-based approach to fact discovery, medical causation and damages. Our clients have consistently praised our ability to grasp and convey the technical side of a product case, and we received a client service award for our work for a product liability client.
