Jeffrey B. Shapiro
Jeff Shapiro handles sophisticated litigation nationwide for companies facing allegations of defective products and other crises that threaten their business, often in the context of multi-district litigation and class actions. During his 40 years as a trial lawyer, manufacturers of medical devices and drugs and makers of televisions, agricultural equipment, and chemical ingredients, among other clients, have relied on Jeff to represent them in trials and arbitrations involving product liability, deceptive trade practices and business claims.
The depth of his experience as a trial lawyer is reflected in his involvement both regionally and nationally in multi-district litigation and global settlement strategies. Jeff has also spoken and written on topics such as the best method to approach “repetitive” litigation involving the same product, both in the context of multiple-state lawsuits and class actions, CAFA 2005, spoliation of evidence and federal preemption.
