Welcome to Product Lines

Welcome to the first blog post from Butler Snow’s latest practice-area blog, Product Lines.  The goal of this blog is to provide up-to-date commentary, insight, and analysis about key product liability matters involving a wide array of products.  Butler Snow’s products defense practice covers everything from recreational vehicles to gas pipeline explosions, automobiles, toxic torts, and firearms.  We will provide you our insight and knowledge regarding product liability cases, issues, and emerging theories involving these and other industrial and consumer products. We will be updating the blog on a regular basis to provide information and commentary about key cases or developments regarding product liability litigation defense.

This blog is written by Butler Snow’s Product Liability Litigation Team.  Our Product Liability Litigation Team is comprised of attorneys with decades of trial experience defending manufacturers and distributors, including a long history of defending product liability claims on a regional and national basis.  Our group has extensive experience in handling the defense of single plaintiffs as well as complex, multidistrict class-action and mass tort litigation.  Our clients include manufacturers, distributors, and service providers from a broad range of industries, including aviation, automotive, firearms, agricultural chemicals, and industrial chemicals.  Our team regularly counsels clients on product safety and regulatory compliance matters, and we represent clients in manufacturer product safety recall cases.

Our editorial goal is to provide real-world insights from our product liability defense attorneys’ unique experience located throughout the United States, Asia, and Europe within Butler Snow’s 24 offices.  With product liability litigation on the rise, along with the risk to manufacturers, distributors, and retailers of significant monetary exposure, it is critical for companies to secure representation of attorneys experienced in defending large, complex suits involving serious personal injuries and significant commercial losses.  We hope to cultivate insightful discussion on day-to-day product liability issues, bringing to light information, news, and insights that may be useful to our readers in future posts.

We appreciate your interest in our product liability blog, Product Lines, and look forward to providing helpful foresight and information to our clients and subscribers.
