Within: Product liability, mass tort and class action: consumer products (including tobacco)

Winston & Strawn LLP’s Chicago-based practice regularly represents manufacturers in the food, beverages, cosmetics and electronics industries in class actions and product liability suits. The class actions team is co-led by Amanda Groves in Charlotte and Los Angeles-based Stephen Smerek. Scott Glaubermann heads the products team and George Lombardi is another key figure. Stephen D’Amore and Washington DC-based Andrew Nichols continue to represent Archer Daniels Midland in a class action alleging equine products were contaminated with a chemical additive that is poisonous to horses. In other work, Kimball Anderson acted for Dell in a putative class action alleging false advertising of the battery life of Inspiron laptops. In early 2017, trial expert Thomas Melsheimer joined the firm from Fish & Richardson P.C., in course of the establishment of a new office in Dallas.
