Leading the Way in Complex Product Liability Cases
During his time at Ashcraft & Gerel and throughout his entire legal career, our partner Drew LaFramboise has established a powerful reputation as a product liability litigator, fearlessly challenging major corporations and securing hundreds of millions in settlements and verdicts. Because of this incredible track record of success, Modern Counsel chose to feature Drew in a recent article, titled “Drew LaFramboise Is Ready for a Fight.”
Chronicling the story behind his early career, the article showcases how Drew first became interested in pursuing product liability law, after witnessing how a five-year-old boy had been badly burned and injured by a toy tractor explosion. “We expect large companies to manufacture and provide safe products,” said Drew, “and when they fail to do that, I’m here to hold them accountable and to make sure my clients are treated fairly along the way.”
Beyond showing how Drew first became committed to this area of the law, the article also provides a comprehensive overview of Drew’s many successes in the healthcare, automobile, and medical device industries, as well as Big Pharma. Noting that these types of high-stakes lawsuits require an extraordinary amount of tenacity, experience, and resources, the article explains how Drew’s unique approach has been an asset throughout his career.
According to Drew, it’s all about having candor and maintaining a positive and amicable relationship with opposing counsel. “In large product litigation cases, you’re going to be working with your counterpart across the aisle for many years. Creating a good working relationship with that person is in your client’s best interest because it keeps the case moving along efficiently and effectively,” said Drew.
The article also discusses Drew’s current litigation focus: Sexual abuse and assault cases, which have significantly increased over the last several years with the #MeToo movement. As more people seek out justice for these heinous acts, Drew hopes to help victims by standing in their corner and applying his vast experience in the civil justice system.
