Led by Todd Logan, our mass torts group practices in state and federal courts nationwide. We have successfully represented thousands of clients, handling all aspects of mass tort litigation, from intake through discovery, trial, and appeals.
Our attorneys have been appointed by courts to serve in leadership roles in some of the most important and high-profile mass tort litigation in the country, including as Co-Lead Counsel in federal multidistrict litigation alleging that NCAA football causes chronic traumatic encephalopathy (“CTE”), as a member of the Plaintiffs’ Executive Committee in multidistrict litigation alleging that a “forever chemical” called PFAS causes cancer, and as counsel to a member of the Tort Claimant Committee in bankruptcy proceedings against Pacific Gas & Electric regarding the 2018 California Camp Fire
Some of our current and past work includes:
- Helping fire victims obtain a $13.5 billion settlement against Pacific Gas & Electric for allegedly starting fires that burned homes in Northern California.
- Representing hundreds of individuals nationwide who allege that industrial facilities caused their cancers by polluting the air with a carcinogen called Ethylene Oxide (“EtO”). We have confidentially settled many of these cases, with others set for trial beginning in July 2023 (Colorado) and January 2024 (Illinois).
- Representing approximately one thousand victims of the 2020 Labor Day Fires in Oregon, with a certified class issues trial in April-June 2023 and thousands of subsequent individual damages trials expected to follow.
- Representing thousands of former NCAA football players in state and federal courts nationwide, who all allege that NCAA football causes CTE. More than a dozen jury trials are expected in these cases in 2023 and 2024.
