Barnwell Whaley represents businesses in litigation involving the design, manufacture, and sale of allegedly defective products.
The types of products we have represented have ranged in size and diversity from a hand-held lighter to large aircraft and have included:
- medical devices
- consumer products
- power tools
- agricultural machinery
- genetically modified seeds
- pharmaceutical products
- industrial and heavy construction equipment
- automobiles and automobile components
Our attorneys in this practice area are not only experienced litigators, but some have technical backgrounds, including several engineering disciplines and advanced science degrees, enabling them to discuss the intricacies of products with authority.
Our research team analyzes each case, assessing exposure and risk of each case, knowing that the outcome can be critical to your business. As attorneys guide our clients towards appropriate resolution, in some cases they find that mediation or arbitration is an option, and they have expertise and years of experience in these resolution techniques. However, if litigation is necessary, the Barnwell Whaley products liability team of nationally recognized defense litigators takes aggressive, thorough action to provide an effective and efficient defense.
