Product Liability & Mass Torts

    Our multi-disciplinary product liability team is experienced and focused on providing innovative and practical solutions for our clients.

    Product liability claims, big or small, can have serious consequences for businesses. Aside from potentially costly claims for damages, product liability issues can threaten the viability of a product in the marketplace, damage a company’s reputation, disrupt supply chains and hinder normal business functions. Legal counsel is essential for companies to protect their businesses from these dangers.

    Our multi-disciplinary team assists clients that manufacture, design, distribute or sell products throughout the United States. We have experience trying cases involving complex design and engineering issues as well as working with clients on matters relating to product recalls and warnings. We are able to counsel companies reporting to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and other governmental agencies. Additionally, we partner with clients to proactively avoid issues before they happen with audits in the areas of safety, employee training, advertising and warranties.

    A large number of our litigation attorneys are regularly recognized in prestigious ranking services, several of our litigators are certified specialists by the Ohio State Bar Association, and many of our trial lawyers are former clerks in federal or state courts. Each of our litigation team members tailors his or her approach to the needs of each individual case, whether it be aggressively trying a case to judgment and defending that judgment on appeal or quickly resolving a dispute.

    We are ready to assist clients in a wide array of industries and practices, including the following:

    • Recreational products
    • Pharmaceuticals
    • Construction
    • Cosmetics
    • Food manufacturing
    • Asbestos litigation
