Mass Tort and Products Liability

MassTort and Products Liability

For our clients facing product liability, negligence and toxic tort issues, we attack mass tort claims arising out of exposure to toxic materials and substances, including a twenty-one year history of successfully defending manufacturers of silica-containing materials and various industrial chemicals. We have defended products exposure cases ranging from asbestos to zinc.  We have shielded our clients from claims arising from products as varied as benzene, cattle feed, computer software, pharmaceuticals, internet services, banking practices, vehicles, industrial equipment, landfills, mining operations and a myriad of other products. We have represented manufacturers, distributors, sellers and hospitals. Our firm has served as national counsel and as Texas regional counsel in mass tort defense programs, and we have also been called on by coordinating counsel to be Texas trial counsel in individual matters. 

We have extensive experience in adapting to insurance coverage arrangements or self-insurance programs and molding consistent defense positions within necessary factual, legal and risk management restraints.  We have appeared in state and federal trial and appellate courts, and in both the Texas and U.S. Supreme Courts on product liability cases.
