Comprehensive and proactive legal advice relies on experience and a thorough knowledge of a product, its design, manufacture and domestic as well as international marketing.
Farris lawyers, working closely with our clients, build the required understanding to identify and advise on emerging issues and regulations, and to prepare the best defence in the courtroom and the applicable regulatory environment.
Our experience includes representation of leading manufacturers in a broad spectrum of industries, including tobacco, asbestos, opioids and other pharmaceuticals, chemical products, agriculture and food, among others. Our relationships with experts includes epidemiologists, doctors, engineers, pharmacologists, physicians and other industry specific experts to assist in our clients’ defence.
We have defended and advised companies in cases alleging traditional causes of action such as defective manufacture, failure to warn, consumer protection and defective design, as well as more complex theories involving class action and aggregate liability, conspiracy and market share liability. When instructed to do so, our practice group members work in close collaboration with other independent law firms to provide co-ordination and consistency.
