Products Liability

Frilot L.L.C. is a leading products liability defense firm with an established reputation for excellence on a national, regional and local basis. Products liability is the firmís largest practice area. More than twenty lawyers devote substantial time to actively litigating cases throughout the United States.

Our group of lawyers, using a small, dedicated team approach has developed a strong understanding of what is required to manage successful jury trials. The firmís success is truly unparalleled: defense verdicts were obtained in more than 90% of the cases tried. Many other cases have been won through motion practice. Equally important, the firmís success on appeals of products liability cases matches its trial success.

There is no doubt that a clear understanding by our opponents of the firmís track record in the courtroom and of our willingness, readiness and ability to try cases with significant exposure has enhanced the resolutions we have achieved for our clients. Our lawyers have defended manufacturers of all types of products in over 30 states, including, of course, industrial and consumer goods. Many of the products liability cases handled by the firm have involved catastrophic personal injuries or have arisen from significant fires or explosions.

The attorneys of Frilot L.L.C. also have considerable experience and success in handling on a national basis what is referred to as pattern litigation involving products. We know what is at stake for product manufacturers in such pattern litigation and how best to address it. Our team works in close partnership with manufacturers every step of the way to insure the best possible outcome.
