We Defend Companies Against Individual-Plaintiff and Class Action Product Liability Claims in Ohio, Kentucky, Colorado, and Nationwide
Product liability claims can present substantial risks. Even in cases involving individual plaintiffs, an unfavorable result can lead to significant liability and set the stage for a flood of litigation. When targeted in class action product liability lawsuits, manufacturers and other commercial parties can face threats to their viability as a going concern.

Experienced Defense Counsel for Product Liability Class Actions and Multi-District Litigation (MDL)
A significant portion of our products liability practice involves defending companies in class action lawsuits and multi-district litigation (MDL). These cases present unique challenges and unique risks, and they require uncompromising legal representation. Our attorneys have had significant success defending companies in product liability class actions and MDL, from preventing class certification to securing pre-trial dismissals and winning at trial.
We Also Handle Insurance Coverage Disputes and Third-Party Claims
In addition to handling individual-plaintiff and class action product liability litigation, we also handle insurance coverage disputes and third-party claims arising out of product liability lawsuits. In insurance coverage disputes, we represent both policyholders and insurers, and we work closely with our clients to ensure that they have a clear understanding of the coverage that is available. We take a comprehensive approach to indemnification claims and other third-party claims as well, leveraging all available options to shift liability away from our clients or minimize their liability when necessary.
