Experience

Serve as co–lead national product liability counsel, providing broad–based support on product development, in addition to serving as lead counsel in a number of product liability litigation matters filed around the country.

Represent a fertility company, and one of its subsidiaries, in mass tort and class action litigation arising out of a freezer tank failure at Pacific Fertility Center.

Advise company on new products coming to market as part of a private label licensing business including diverse product lines such as personal care products, children’s furniture, automotive accessories, and educational supplies.

Advise start–up on product liability risk assessment and mitigation associated with Internet of Things and product misuse.

Defended company in a class action alleging that a wearable device does not accurately track sleep as advertised and in two class actions alleging that Fitbit’s heart rate monitoring does not work as advertised. The heart rate monitoring class actions have spawned securities class actions against the company and we are coordinating the interplay between both sets of cases.

Serve as national coordinating counsel for Fitbit in five class action lawsuits and over 30 personal injury lawsuits arising from the widely publicized recall of Fitbit’s Force activity tracker. We successfully conducted the recall in a short timeframe and negotiated a quick and favorable settlement of the class action litigation. We also represent Fitbit in a class action alleging that a wearable device does not accurately track sleep as advertised and in two class actions alleging that Fitbit’s heart rate monitoring does not work as advertised. The heart rate monitoring class actions have spawned securities class actions against the company and we are coordinating the interplay between both sets of cases.
