United States > Dispute resolution > Product liability, mass tort and class action - defense: automotive/transport

Resourcing matters utilising litigators throughout the country, including many with general product liability and class action prowess, as well as lawyers with deep industry knowledge within the firm’s discrete automotive practice, Norton Rose Fulbright provides robust representation on behalf of an eclectic mix of auto clients, including component part manufacturers and dealers; retail outlets and automotive companies. Many of these disputes relate to product defects and frequently involve the firm acting as national/regional co-ordinating counsel and lead trial counsel in class actions and MDLs. Much of the work in the space is centred out of the firm’s Texas offices, with San Antonio-based automotive head Jeffrey Webb  a popular choice among clients, as a result not only of his work in private practice but also because of his engineering background and previous in-house role for an Ohio-based tire manufacturer. The team is also increasingly active handling trucking accidents involving catastrophic injury and death, with both Brett Young and Steven Jansma serving as regional trial counsel to Vulcan Materials Company, in that regard.

United States > Energy > Energy litigation: oil and gas

Norton Rose Fulbright has considerable experience representing oil corporations, pipelines, energy traders and oil field service companies on both a domestic and international scale. Counting some of the industry’s biggest players among its key roster of clients, the team acts before state and federal courts across the country in upstream, midstream and downstream cases, and houses a dynamic arbitration practice, acting on high-stakes disputes. Houston-based Melanie Rother leads the team with a national trial practice focused on business litigation in the energy sector on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants. Daniel McClure handles a range of commercial litigation cases, including class actions, royalty disputes, contract disputes and Qui Tam False Claims Act actions. Reagan Brown focuses on trial, arbitration and appellate litigation, while San Antonio’s Jeffrey Webb acts on litigation arising from upstream, midstream and oil field services activities. Praised for her ‘strong advocacy skills’, Carter Dugan is another key member of the group, handling energy arbitration matters.
