Overview:

In recent years, product liability issues have continuously expanded in terms of complexity, range, and number. Companies must ensure that the crucial areas of litigation and liability risks are covered efficiently. They should consider negotiating with other regulatory agencies apart from their primary regulator. The current trends in treble damages claims and the increasing preference of multidistrict litigation (MDL) courts for early settlements should also be given significant attention.

Complex aspects of product liability litigation can be overwhelming to product manufacturers and sellers. However, these can still be managed by securing up-to-date knowledge and implementing effective strategies.

Join litigators Timothy L. Krippner (Segal McCambridge Singer & Mahoney, Ltd.) and Jonathan S. Tam (Dechert LLP) as they discuss the recent trends and developments relating to product liability litigation. As experts, they will also offer the best practical tips and strategies on how companies can manage crucial litigation fronts.

Key topics include:

  • Product Liability Litigation: Statistics
  • Risks and Issues
  • Managing Every Litigation Front
  • Litigation Tips and Strategies
  • Outlook

Jonathan S. Tam, Counsel
Dechert LLP

Jonathan S. Tam advises clients in mass tort and product liability litigation with an emphasis on the pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturing industries in cases filed by individual plaintiffs, State Attorneys Generals, municipalities, and third-party payors.

He is an experienced litigator and trusted advisor.  He has led, managed, and handled various aspects of complex, nationwide litigations in state and federal courts, including developing and implementing case strategy, arguing dispositive motions, working with expert witnesses, taking and defending fact and expert depositions, and going to trial.

He has extensive experience drafting briefs at both the trial and appellate levels, and in particular, briefs concerning the admissibility of expert testimony under Daubert.  He was key member of teams that secured the dismissal of plaintiffs’ general causation testimony under Daubert and the entry of summary judgment for a pharmaceutical manufacturer in two major mass torts, and also helped draft the briefs that ultimately cemented those victories in the federal appellate courts.  See In re Lipitor (Atorvastatin Calcium) Mktg., Sales Practices & Prod. Liab. Litig. (No II) MDL 2502, 892 F.3d 624, 631 (4th Cir. 2018); In re Zoloft (Sertraline Hydrochloride) Prod. Liab. Litig., 858 F.3d 787 (3d Cir. 2017).  These Daubert decisions are routinely cited by courts and parties around the country.
