Complex Fact Investigation

Mass Tort, Consumer Products & General Investigations

 

Complex litigation just means that this particular type of litigation has many interconnected parts. In most cases, those parts are constantly moving through numerous parties, documents, dates, clients, systems, messages, and a host of other factors to an ultimate conclusion that could take years to resolve. Along the way litigation may slow down, speed up, stop and restart, add and/or subtract parties, change venue or become impacted by other unforeseeable circumstances. We know from experience to be prepared at the onset for any number of surprises.

 

Our phased research investigations prepare attorneys for every aspect of litigation, from discovery through jury selection and trial. We have the resources and experience to handle the most complex and far-reaching investigations in a variety of industries and practice areas, including tobacco, healthcare, pharmaceutical, medical device, toxic tort, asbestos, environmental, insurance, IP, automotive, consumer products, construction, farming equipment, aircraft, watercraft and recreational vehicles. We also have experience with white collar crime and employment cases related to whistleblowers, harassment and fraud.
