Porter Hedges attorneys have defended domestic and foreign product manufacturers and sellers.  We handle single plaintiff and mass tort matters expertly and efficiently.  Many of the cases we handle allege catastrophic injury or death.  In these cases, Porter Hedges attorneys have successfully made and defended against intricate challenges to experts in a variety of disciplines, and obtained summary judgment for some clients.  For our foreign clients and domestic clients with foreign subsidiaries, we have handled trans-border discovery which includes the need to properly address certain countries’ blocking statutes and privacy regulations.

We have particular experience defending products from a wide variety of industries, including agricultural implements, automobiles, chemicals, consumer products, drilling equipment, industrial equipment, pharmaceuticals, pressure control equipment, tires, tubular products, valves, and other metal products.  In the pharmaceutical context, in addition to handling single-plaintiff cases as well as mass tort matters, a number of our attorneys provide representation to current and former sales and marketing employees in civil and criminal contexts.
