Within: Product liability, mass tort and class actions: consumer products (including tobacco) - defense

Leveraging a team of ‘experienced trial lawyers’, Winston & Strawn LLP advises clients from a wide range of industries on product liability and class action-related matters. Notable work highlights include acting for Archer Daniels Midland in a class action alleging equine products were contaminated with a chemical additive that is poisonous to horses, successfully defending Panasonic against a claim that televisions suffered from a latent defect that caused them to prematurely fail, and representing Dollar General and its indemnifying supplier in a putative class action regarding the labeling of a body gel. Natalie Arbaugh in Dallas and Stephen Smerek in Los Angeles co-lead the consumer and class actions team, while Washington DC-based Matthew Campbell heads the product liability practice. Other key figures include Luke Connelly in New York, and George Lombardi and Scott Glauberman in Chicago.
