“Puncture” Spotlights Unfair Competition

Making sure that new and innovative products are available to the public is critical to our country’s future, and The Lanier Law Firm is fighting to make sure this happens.

If you saw the movie Puncture starring Chris Evans (who also stars in Captain America) as well as a cameo of Mark Lanier playing himself,* you know that many medical device makers with innovative products that can save lives, reduce the spread of disease, and reduce health care costs cannot sell their products in the US. The reason is that large manufacturers and group purchasing organizations have conspired to prevent smaller companies from entering the market. This anticompetitive behavior is illegal, and The Lanier Law Firm has recovered millions of dollars in compensation for clients who have faced this misconduct. If you believe your company has been a victim of unfair competition or misconduct, whether in the medical arena or any other industry, please fill out our contact form or call our Houston law office for immediate assistance. The Lanier Law Firm handles these cases on a contingency-fee basis, which means that we are paid only if we are successful.

* Please note that while Mark Lanier plays himself in the movie, the movie is significantly dissimilar from the actual lawsuit that forms the subject of the movie.

Mark has a speaking cameo role in this movie based on one of his cases. This film centers on the sordid life of another lawyer and the difficulties and demons he fought while working in the legal world. It is not for children, as it graphically represents the life of a very troubled soul, with language, drug use, and sexual matters inappropriate for young people.
