Jury awards in the tens of millions are no longer unusual, making it increasingly attractive for individuals and groups to make claims against manufacturers of all types of products.

To achieve consistent successful outcomes, our lawyers immerse themselves in the issues, educate themselves on the latest developments in the field, and become thoroughly familiar with every relevant aspect of the case.
