K&L Gates’ product liability lawyers counsel clients on the full range of issues that can arise during the life cycle of a product, always with the goal of mitigating and reducing the risks of litigation, regulatory actions, and government investigations. When litigation does occur, our clients have entrusted our seasoned trial lawyers with the defense of thousands of cases, from the initial pleading stage through trial and appeal, coordinating the national, regional, and local defense in state and federal courts including mass tort proceedings, acting as national discovery and science counsel, and handling class actions and multidistrict litigation.

Our group understands that there is no “one size fits all” approach to any litigation and perhaps especially to mass tort litigation. Our experience has proven the importance of being fluid when it comes to assessing the best approach for defending a single case or thousands of cases.

Our ability to handle repetitive product liability litigation effectively—and cost-efficiently—is due in large part to our network of offices in the United States and around the globe. This network greatly enhances our clients’ ability to control the strategy, management, and cost of national and international litigation across a broad geographic spectrum without sacrificing the quality of the defense. Our global platform also permits us to monitor and understand how a decision in one state or country could negatively impact our client in another state or country without relying on separate local and regional counsel.
