Products Liability

Litigation concerning products liability claims presents numerous and challenging issues to product manufacturers, distributors, and retail sellers. The challenges are not limited to the litigation of claims, but also entail assisting companies regarding risk management, loss prevention, regulatory compliance, and public relations.

We are actively involved in all phases of design development of many industrial and consumer products. Our attorneys respond to all types of related issues such as testing, marketing and contract issues.  We have developed a thorough understanding of our clients’ industries.  Significantly, our attorneys are among the leaders in the profession addressing the recent developments in Pennsylvania products liability law as well as similar developments that arise throughout the country.
