Product Liability & Tort Law



Product Liability and Tort Law

For decades, Connell Foley has been at the forefront of product liability litigation and tort law. Our group provides proactive counsel in all areas of potential liability, including the design, manufacture, and distribution of consumer, commercial, and industrial products. If litigation ensues, we have a deep bench of experienced trial attorneys skilled in all phases of proceedings, from pretrial discovery, expert selection, motion practice through trial and appeal.

We have earned a strong reputation for excellence by combining our commonsense experience with a keen eye on innovation in the field of practice. Our attorneys have served as lead counsel in significant cases, ranging from single plaintiff lawsuits to class actions. Our litigators have successfully represented clients in state and federal courts throughout the United States.
