In addition, our Product Liability Practice Group has teamed up with Schnader’s Environmental Practice Group to create a multi-disciplinary Toxic Tort Team. Our team has handled litigation involving innumerable metals, fibers and particulates, solvents, gases, and other chemicals.

Our Product Liability Practice Group also has joined forces with Schnader’s Appellate Practice Group, one of the premier groups of appellate attorneys in the country. Clients retain our Product Liability Appellate/Post-Trial Team when faced with an adverse verdict or the prospect of an adverse verdict or to defend successful verdicts. If brought into the case prior to an appeal, our Appellate Team can help with the preservation of issues and establishing a complete record.

The breadth and depth of our experience allow us to provide our clients with the best possible service in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
