Products Liability Litigation

Viewing:

Companies survive and thrive based on their reputations for developing safe, high-quality products in response to marketplace demand. When that reputation is called into question, Beck Redden’s Products Liability practice understands the enormity of the stakes. Fortune 500 companies producing medical devices, pharmaceuticals, tobacco products, automotive components, construction products, and other widely-distributed goods look to us when trial appears inevitable.

Lawsuits claiming personal injury due to a single product can number in the tens of thousands or more, posing a daunting threat to the company who made it. These cases usually span across states and jurisdictions where applicable laws vary, giving rise to the risk that legal positions taken to win in one court will inadvertently trigger losses elsewhere. In addition, shifting political winds can produce sudden changes in environmental, health, and safety regulations that impact exposure to litigation. Beck Redden understands that above all else, success requires comprehensive strategic thinking, anticipation, creativity, and innovation.

Our Products Liability practice helps clients by:
  • Trying cases in courts nationwide
  • Advising clients in repeat litigation
  • Preparing forward-thinking strategies designed for broad success
  • Developing compelling company conduct stories and preparing witnesses for trial
  • Thoroughly analyzing all relevant documents and leveraging the support they offer
  • Monitoring the opponent’s legal positions and the evolution of the case, adjusting strategy and tactics accordingly
  • Building effective trial-ready legal teams, molding participants that may come from different law firms into a cohesive and resilient unit
  • Providing proven leadership and management of complex, sprawling multidistrict litigation

When our lawyers step into the courtroom, they do so as ambassadors for a company whose reputation is under attack. Beck Redden is among a shortlist of firms routinely trying cases of consequence, and we take great pride in being at our best under pressure. We are not afraid to present the opposition with something they haven’t seen before, or adjusting course when an approach isn’t working.

Beck Redden’s experience, diligent preparation, and ability to seize opportunity give our clients the confidence and optimism to withstand the most difficult product-related challenges. Even when a large nationally-known law firm has prepared a case, many companies will insist that Beck Redden be the firm to take that case to trial.
