Covington litigators have led the defense of many of the most prominent and high-stakes mass tort cases of recent years, including litigation involving global product recalls, the opioid epidemic, concussion injuries in major league sports, and injuries arising from acts of terrorism abroad.

Complex mass tort litigation plays to Covington’s strengths on behalf of clients. It requires strategic judgment; the experience and resources to manage sprawling multi-jurisdictional litigation; creative thinking for novel issues; top-notch trial lawyers who can win bellwether cases before juries, experienced policy and former regulatory professionals, and government investigations lawyers who work seamlessly with our mass tort litigators.

Managing Risks

We understand the significant risks that this type of litigation can pose to our clients’ businesses. We have an extensive record of developing thoughtful, effectives strategies to manage not only the financial risk presented by plaintiffs, but also the political and reputational risks that are often associated with high-profile tort litigation.

Pre-trial, Trial, and Appellate Victories

We have had significant success convincing opposing counsel to abandon their claims ahead of trial, and we also regularly try cases to verdict, having secured numerous victories on behalf of our clients in court. When needed, we are well-equipped to defend our successes on appeal and have done so throughout the country.
