The product liability and toxic tort litigators group is a successful group of attorneys with an exceptional depth of experience in today’s litigious environment. Skilled in product defense, MLA delivers prompt and vigorous representation when product liability and warranty lawsuits attack the integrity and reputation of a manufacturer, distributor, or retailer.
Our professionals have substantial experience in quickly and successfully defending manufacturers and sellers through negotiation, arbitration, or trial. To control the cost of litigation and maximize the predictability of the outcome, we believe in early case evaluation and therefore utilize standardized procedures to streamline case management as well as experienced paralegals.

MLA’s work includes personal injury and property damage litigation, in addition to counseling and training. We work closely with clients to develop effective mechanisms to avoiding lawsuits when developing or marketing a new product or when they have an environmental release or incident. We have solid experience in defense of actions involving multiple plaintiffs and defendants, and our lawyers are often called upon to act as national coordinating counsel. Prae Legal’s experts are also successful in defeating class certification.
Our clients benefit from the fact that our product liability and toxic tort practitioners combine their experience in complex civil litigation with the firm’s experience in the technical and medical issues that often form the battleground for these cases.
