Our Approach

Although we are prepared to handle products liability litigation when it arises, we rely upon our extensive experience in this area to proactively advise clients, in an effort to avoid product liability litigation altogether. We have on many occasions reviewed product literature to assess the sufficiency of product warnings. Additionally, our experience in this area can be helpful in conjunction with our intellectual property practice, for clients seeking to patent and/or market new devices.
