I have been handling product liability cases for 30 years now, and often that work involves collaborating with national counsel. I enjoy that, and I think I’ve always worked well with national counsel because I understand the realities of the situation. They have a big picture view of the client’s business, risk exposure, and preferred outcome. I have important knowledge about the local conditions where a case is being heard. We need both to get the client where they want to go.
