Godfrey & Kahn's Products Liability and Tort Practice Group has the breadth and depth of experience to work with clients on risk prevention and regulatory compliance as well as litigation to defend products or recover costs incurred due to product failures.
Prevention and Compliance
Product liability and tort lawsuits impact your bottom line, and can potentially tarnish your company's reputation. We work to help clients meet regulatory requirements, and identify, minimize, and manage legal risks as an integral first line of defense when business may lead to product liability and tort matters. We understand the products and culture of the businesses that we represent and use our in-depth knowledge of product design and engineering, labeling, distribution and marketing, and consumer usage, along with our litigation experience, to advise our clients on how they can achieve their business objectives with minimal risk or litigation. Wherever our clients' business takes them, we have the experience, legal expertise and practical, business-savvy attitude to help them succeed.
When litigation cannot be avoided, our attorneys are prepared to defend our clients' reputations and their products. We have a proven track record of successful defense in a variety of product-related lawsuits, ranging from single-product liability trials to the most demanding complex tort and class-action matters. We consider our representation to be more than just attorney-client arrangements; they are strategic business partnerships centered around developing coherent and targeted strategies and are responsive to our clients' objectives. Product liability and tort cases involve preparation, evaluation and resolution of the matter as expeditiously as possible and at minimal cost to our client. Clients are involved in the decision-making process at every stage of litigation, and apprised of their risks, options and potential expenses.
