Product Liability Litigation - Defendants
Gardere’s product liability and tort practice provides a complete array of services to manufacturers, sellers, shippers, insurers and other litigants, with many of our clients being key players in the chemical, entertainment, and oil and gas industries. Our attorneys are expert in the area of product liability and tort, with a significant emphasis on environmental work.
We’ve tried cases in state and federal courts nationwide from conventional personal injury lawsuits to mass torts and class actions. Gardere attorneys have appeared regularly in arbitration of domestic and international disputes for a broad client base ranging from small businesses to some of the largest organizations in their industries, both public and private. A number of our attorneys have also served as corporate counsel for some of the world’s major oil companies, prompting many major oil and gas companies and manufacturing firms in our markets to look to us when the need arises.
Our attorneys have a legacy of advising and representing clients in matters involving state and federal regulatory agencies, such as environmental compliance, recalls and retrofits. We’re experienced in dealing with key federal organizations with jurisdiction over products and industries, including the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Food and Drug Administration, National Transportation Safety Board, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and U.S. Department of Labor Occupational Safety and Health Administration. In addition, our team assists clients with litigation management, document polices and management, insurance, and risk management. Partners serve as national or regional counsel for numerous corporations and insurers.
You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander. A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.
Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used. For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.
AND and OR may be used in a search. Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance."
The + and - sign operators may be used. The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".
To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks. For example, "Project Finance".
