Chambers USA once again ranked Williams & Connolly among the top law firms in the nation for “Products Liability & Mass Torts” in its 2021 edition. The practice has been ranked in Band 1 since 2010. The publication performs in-depth client focused research and is read by industry-leading companies and organizations worldwide.
As reported by Chambers USA, one source says the practice team has “tremendous relationships with opposing counsel that get them everyday victories that add up to terrific results.” Another client noted, “[t]hey have a sterling reputation with bench and Bar alike - I cannot think of a better firm for bet-the-company MDL work, or any litigation work, for that matter.” Chambers USA also recognized practice co-chairs, Heidi Hubbard and Joe Petrosinelli, among the top practitioners in the country.
The Williams & Connolly Products Liability, Torts, and Medicine practice group represents pharmaceutical and medical device makers and distributors in all aspects of national and international litigation as: (a) lead trial counsel, (b) national or global coordinating counsel, (c) resolution counsel, and (d) appellate counsel. The firm also handles litigation involving many other types of products, including consumer products, children’s products, industrial equipment, farm equipment, utility-grade electrical equipment, and aviation-related products liability claims, to name a few.
