Our Electrical Equipment Team has extensive trial and appellate experience defending manufacturers, distributors, employers, and contractors in cases involving the alleged failure of electrical components and controllers. We get involved at early stages, and frequently coordinate the investigation of the claim, including retention of cause and origin experts in fire claims. Our early involvement often tells subrogation counsel for an insurer that their efforts and energies are better spent elsewhere.
We are familiar with, and knowledgeable concerning, the standards governing the industry, including NFPA standards and all pertinent electrical codes. We can tackle adverse experts not merely on collateral issues, but also on the science underlying their opinions, and have done so with success for many years.
We regularly lecture in this field, and advise our clients regarding standards, compliance, risk management and prevention, contract review, insurance, intellectual property, and a variety of other issues.
