Practice Area

Mass Tort & Product Liability

We represent businesses as both plaintiffs and defendants in multidistrict litigation (MDL), class actions, and other aggregated forms of litigation. The team consistently prevails in cases at the trial and appellate level, in federal and state courts nationwide, and across a broad range of industries that include agriculture, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, and manufacturing.

A winning strategy

Our representation is both nimble and effective. By combining top-level subject matter experience with the strategic use of cutting-edge resources and support, we deliver uncompromising service and superior results for a fraction of the cost of traditional large legal teams.

First, we develop a strategic plan based on decades of experience as MDL liaison counsel, coordinating counsel, and lead counsel in mass actions featuring thousands of claimants and billions of dollars in potential liability. We then execute this plan with the help of a roster of top experts, in-depth jury research, and best practices legal technology.

Clients also value our ability to translate complicated scientific and technical subjects—from ground water hydrology to bacterial genomics—into accessible, compelling presentations. We also have significant experience presenting and cross-examining experts in a variety of scientific and technical disciplines in order to successfully address property damage and injury claims related to a variety of alleged causes (e.g., bacteria, benzene, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, fungi, heavy metals, herbicides, hydrocarbons, industrial solvents, lead, and pesticides) and vectors (e.g., air, contact, occupational, take home, soil, and water).

Many of our lawyers began their careers at the nation’s top law firms, while others joined us from the United States Department of Justice and the Harris County District Court bench. We are frequently called upon to speak at CLEs and other programs on the topics of scientific evidence (including new age genomic evidence), the Daubert standard, and MDL process and procedure.
