Mass tort litigation can be high-stakes, costly and taxing for corporations. Without experienced and creative counsel with a strategy for efficient case management, multidistrict litigation and class actions can quickly drain corporate resources. Shook, Hardy & Bacon provides corporations with experienced, effective counsel and sufficient resources to prevail in complex product liability, toxic tort and mass disaster litigation.
For more than five decades, Shook's tort attorneys have served as lead defense and trial counsel in some of the largest and most substantial national and international mass tort lawsuits. We frequently advise companies on liability issues before a lawsuit is filed to limit the risk of future exposure, and if a suit has already been filed, we employ our collective wealth of knowledge and expertise to cost-effectively manage cases from pretrial discovery through motion practice, trial and—when necessary—appeal.
