High-stakes litigation is on the rise in the world of product liability actions. When you find your company facing this kind of problem, you need a team that’s been there. Alston & Bird’s products liability lawyers are “litigation stoppers” and use our extensive experience and technical and scientific know-how to gain critical leverage in these cases; our success at excluding scientific evidence has proven decisive in a number of Daubert victories. We are experienced litigators who try cases all the way to the verdict, but we also know that’s not the best choice in every circumstance. The products liability lawyers at Alston & Bird provide in-depth analysis of the risks and potential costs so you can decide the best course of action. When settlement, arbitration, or mediation offers a better chance of a favorable resolution, we have a long track record of negotiating positive outcomes.
Products liability is a diverse area of law reflecting an array of possible issues, and we have helped clients in industries as varied as automotive, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, chemicals, and consumer products achieve outcomes that not only preserved their place in the market, but prevented future litigation on the same issues. We defend every type of product liability case from individual personal injury to false advertising, diminished value, and product warranty class actions. Our experience in federal and state courts, including California courts, means that our nimble, detail-oriented teams are uniquely positioned to manage your matter in a focused and cost-efficient way. We also understand the crisis-management requirements that a product recall or regulatory enforcement action can create, and our lawyers excel in limiting the damage these events can cause.
In products liability cases, your business goals have to be front and center. Our lawyers understand that your brand’s needs drive the legal strategy, and we work with you to find the most satisfactory conclusion to your case.
