The firm’s sophisticated product liability and life sciences practice offers manufacturers, distributors, retailers, employers, purchasers, and consumers outstanding representation. We have substantial experience representing clients in a wide array of litigation, including but not limited to pharmaceutical (prescription, generic, and OTC) and medical device defense litigation, mass tort and toxic tort litigation (including asbestos, pesticide, benzene, and lead paint), cosmetics, and actions involving machines and equipment (e.g., exercise equipment, fuel tanks, and fire suppression systems). We are conversant in the technical aspects of these products and related medical and scientific issues, and we specialize in identifying and developing outstanding experts. We also research and analyze regulatory issues and advise clients on compliance with statutes and agencies such as the FDA, the Hazard Communication Act, and OSHA .

Jardim, Meisner & Susser, P.C. , serves as national and local counsel for state and federal actions in New Jersey and New York. We are experienced in MDL litigation. Our attorneys have drafted significant briefs and argued substantive motions on a variety of cutting-edge issues, including market share, a proposed preconception tort, preemption, application of a state’s product liability act, and complicated spoliation (the effect that a retailer’s loss of a product has on the plaintiff and  manufacturer). We represent clients directly or as insureds through our insurance clients. In both cases, our team of dedicated attorneys provides the best possible defense for our clients.

We tackle a variety of product liability issues, ranging from design and manufacturing defects to defective or inadequate warnings, breach of product warranty, indemnification arising from a product defect, consumer fraud, medical monitoring, and noncompliance with industry standards or government regulations. Our attorneys have an uncanny ability to delve into the nature of a product and conscientiously develop defensive theories, including alternate causation, sophisticated user, product misuse, state-of-the-art defense, and the government contract defense, just to name a few.

Many firms steer away from complex technical matters. Jardim, Meisner & Susser is a breed apart. We have the knowledge and skills to handle the most challenging cases, and a track record of success to prove it.
