Legal 500 recognizes Goodwin Procter’s Products Liability Practice

Legal 500 has recognized Goodwin Procter’s Products Liability Practice in its recently released United States survey, a ranking of the top legal practices and practitioners in the world.   This marks the third year in a row that the Goodwin team has been recognized as a leader in product liability and mass tort defense for consumer products and tobacco.

The Legal 500 editors commented:

Clients of Goodwin Procter LLP say that ‘the level of service and results obtained are consistently outstanding in all areas’. Boasting 26 partners across offices in Boston, New York, San Francisco and Washington DC, the firm is able to ensure strong partner-level attention to matters. It has a rich history in aggregated actions and regularly acts as company and insurer-appointed counsel on a national basis.”

William Hanlon  in Washington DC is ‘an extremely competent litigator’. Richard Wyner, also in Washington DC, is ‘an outstanding brief writer and appellate lawyer who pays great attention to detail’. Forrest Hainline in San Francisco is also strongly recommended.

Published for over twenty years, the Legal 500 series provides comprehensive worldwide coverage on legal services providers, in over 100 countries.
