Products Liability


The attorneys at Howard & Festa develop strong client relationships and rely on teamwork to successfully handle complex products liability cases.  We work closely with our clients at all stages of litigation to tailor and implement workable strategies that are appropriate for the case and the client.


Shielding clients’ rights


Our experienced products liability attorneys concentrate on claims brought against manufacturers, distributors, and retailers.  We represent multi-national companies, national associations, and small businesses that manufacture and distribute products, as well as their insurers. 


We recognize that in liability defense cases, extensive interaction among the client and attorneys is critical to addressing the problem at hand and to minimizing the risk of future exposure. We also offer proactive measures to help clients avoid claims that may result from product recalls and accidental injuries.


We also routinely counsel clients on products liability, product design, and warnings in connection with the manufacture, distribution, and sale of products.


Through our years in products liability litigation, we have developed a network of experts with expertise in a broad range of fields, including designers, accident reconstruction experts, engineers, metallurgists, and specialists in safety, warnings and medical causation.
