Sills Cummis & Gross has earned a reputation as a “go-to” firm to defend complex product liability cases and mass tort litigation. For the past four decades, we have successfully represented pharmaceutical, medical device, consumer product, industrial equipment and chemical companies as national, regional and New Jersey counsel in “bet the company” litigation.
Our product liability and mass tort lawyers are known for their legal, scientific, technical, trial and settlement expertise. Our understanding and experience with e-discovery enables us to successfully tackle the most vexing of discovery issues, including cases where a “live” product is the subject of litigation. Our lawyers have prevailed at every stage of litigation including motions to dismiss the pleadings, summary judgment, trial and on appeal. We have tried product liability cases to juries across the United States and are often sought out as New Jersey trial counsel for complex cases designated as mass torts by our Supreme Court.
We take pride in partnering with our clients to understand their business needs. Toward that end and in addition to defending product liability litigation, we help our clients conserve their resources by resolving claims before they evolve into litigation through mediation or other early case assessment strategies. We also counsel and help clients develop practical and effective risk management strategies. When the need arises, we handle complex commercial cases relating to the industries our clients serve.
Our practice group has been ranked by Chambers USA as a “leading firm” in product liability, and our lawyers have been recognized by Martindale-Hubbell, Law360, The Best Lawyers in America and New Jersey Super Lawyers. We regularly write about important issues in product liability litigation in a variety of publications, and lecture at product liability seminars throughout the United States.
