Our clients include manufacturers, retailers and distributors in various industries including chemicals, electrical equipment and components, industrial machinery, automobile safety devices, fire safety equipment, medical equipment and devices, firearms, construction equipment, agricultural equipment, processed food, consumer products and many more. We also have a substantial practice representing hospitals, nursing homes, physicians and other health care providers in medical malpractice and professional liability matters.

We also represent Monsanto as national counsel in selected chemical products and as joint national coordinating and trial counsel for enforcement of certain of Monsanto’s biotechnology intellectual property rights. We have been selected as Monsanto’s principal national trial firm.
In terms of products liability case handling, we focus on service and strive to control costs. We maximize utilization of database, case management, and litigation support technology.

Stephen is a exceptional labor & employment attorney. Whenever I have an issue or a question that I don't know how to address, I email or call Stephen and he is incredibly responsive. He either knows the way a situation needs to be handled, or he will research and find out. He always leaves me with the necessary tools in order for me to effectively fulfill my job including either documents or notes on how to lead a difficult discussion with an employee. I highly recommend Stephen!Read less
