Thompson & Knight attorneys advise a variety of well-known national consumer product retailers on finance and securities (including initial public offerings), employee benefits, executive compensation, intellectual property, and general corporate matters. Our attorneys work with clients on the cutting edge of the digital retailing revolution, such as a video game development company, and a well-known e-tailer facing a copyright infringement suit over products sold on the company's web site.
A distinct focus of our practice is defending producers of foods, beverages, and consumer products against individual and class action product liability lawsuits. Our litigators have represented manufacturers of electric saws, lawnmowers, and household items in suits alleging shock injuries, electrocutions, or fires. We defended several large manufacturers of tires for vehicles, aircraft, and heavy equipment, and a patio door lock manufacturer. Our product liability attorneys have also defended a national manufacturer of baby feeding products, and a tampon manufacturer in toxic shock litigation. In these and other cases, we combine exceptional courtroom skills with focused consumer products knowledge to be effective advocates for our clients.
