Product liability litigation
Our product liability experience includes the defense of manufacturers—airframe, aircraft engine and component parts, and avionics—in aviation disaster litigation. Our most recent work includes acting as lead counsel representing an avionics manufacturer in a multiple-forum, multiple-plaintiff air crash involving a foreign carrier. We also have defended numerous other non-aviation products from the consumer goods, medical device, industrial and automotive industries. Although our work with product manufacturers often includes litigation, we work with our product clients at all stages of the process in an effort to avoid claims, prevent litigation and enhance risk management. Our attorneys have significant experience in alternative dispute resolution through both the mediation and arbitration processes.
