Michael BrownNelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP

Product liability forms the backbone of Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP‘s national litigation offering which continues to grow and was further enhanced by the arrival of a 22-partner team in January 2022 from Bowman and Brooke LLP, adding depth and even further geographical range including offices in several new locations. The team now has further strength in handling asbestos and talc-related mandates, as well as environmental toxic tort matters caused by chemical release and spill incidents. Michael Brown   in Baltimore is one of many first chair trial lawyers in the space and continues to represent Johnson & Johnson as lead trial counsel for the healthcare giant in its talc cases. Based out of South Carolina, Mark Jones  and David Dukes  co-head the team alongside Brown, with Dukes handling a significant amount of pharmaceuticals-related work as part of his broad product liability practice.
