Products Liability Team
GWB’s Products Liability Team has extensive experience in defending a wide variety of products liability claims, including mass tort and catastrophic loss claims. With an emphasis on strategic advocacy, team members are frequently called upon to conduct accident investigations and routinely advise clients on all aspects of the post-accident investigation and claims process.
Team members have served as national or local counsel for clients who are involved in either the design, manufacture, sale, or distribution of a wide range of products, including:
Team members also believe that in order to continue to build their legal knowledge and provide the highest level of service to the team’s clients, participation in professional organizations is necessary. The Products Liability Team is actively involved in the following organizations:
- International Association of Defense Counsel (IADC)
- Federation of Defense and Corporate Counsel (FDCC)
- Defense Research Institute (DRI)
- ational Foundation for Judicial Excellence (NFJE)
- Lawyers for Civil Justice (LCJ)
Members of the Products Liability Team are called upon at all hours and stand ready to assist the firm’s product liability clients in the event of a product-related emergency or catastrophic event. For example, members of GWB’s Products Liability Team served as lead counsel in the emergency response, post-accident investigation, and claims handling of a massive boiler explosion that resulted in catastrophic personal injury and property damage. Team members were on-site within hours of the explosion and were involved in advising the client and directing aspects of the emergency response. GWB understands the importance of collecting information and evidence as soon as possible following an incident. The team provides its clients with an emergency response contact sheet which contains the work, home and cellular telephone numbers of each team member in order to better serve the GWB’s products liability clients.
