At Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig, our product liability team specializes in representing corporate clients in complex product liability matters. We strive to vigorously represent manufacturers and distributors in the most cost-effective manner possible. As a boutique firm with lawyers who left behind mega-firms—firms that have continually raised their hourly rates in recent years—we provide our clients with large firm expertise and superior service at economical rates.
We have successfully defended claims and cases brought against manufacturers and distributors of all types of products including; automobiles, landscape maintenance equipment, asbestos and other chemicals, hand held power equipment, pharmaceutical drugs, construction equipment and vehicles. Our clients have ranged from Fortune 100 companies, to the American dream small business.
We have a proven track record of defending manufacturers in state and federal courts around the nation. In fact, we have significant experience handling product liability cases in some of the most hostile jurisdictions in the country.
We analyze and evaluate our cases early to determine the most efficient and strategic means of defense, including the most effective method of resolution whenever possible. More often than not, a product liability case can determine the future of a business. We understand that settling one critical case can result in a floodgate of litigation against a client. That is why we are unafraid to try a case to verdict, particularly in the face of unreasonable demands by trial lawyers. However, we also understand that certain cases should not be tried. Therefore, we work closely with our clients to secure early resolution where appropriate to ensure the most advantageous outcome.
Moreover, our expertise is not merely limited to representing our clients in the courtroom. We routinely advise clients on ways to reduce, or altogether, eliminate their litigation exposure. We counsel manufacturers and distributors on various other matters, including document retention policies, preservation letters and spoliation, insurance coverage issues, products literature and warning labels, and indemnification.
