HOUSTON – The Lanier Law Firm, founded by acclaimed trial lawyer Mark Lanier, is being recognized as one of the nation’s Most Feared Plaintiffs’ Firms of 2014 by the national legal publication Law360.
The firm also has been named to the Texas Verdicts Hall of Fame by Texas Lawyer newspaper. Just a month ago, Law360 declared Mr. Lanier a Titan of the Plaintiffs’ Bar.
With offices in Houston, New York and Los Angeles, The Lanier Law Firm is a leading national advocate in cases involving dangerous consumer products, catastrophic vehicle and worksite injuries, and high-stakes business disputes. The Most Feared Plaintiffs’ Firms list was assembled by Law360’s editors based on reader nominations and extensive research. Only 10 firms in the U.S. are listed.
“It is an incredible honor for our organization to be included among such an amazing list of firms,” says Mr. Lanier. “Whether we are handling commercial litigation, personal injury or product liability cases, there’s no way we would be recognized if it were not for the incredible and diverse work provided by every attorney in our firm.”
In April, Mr. Lanier and other attorneys from The Lanier Law Firm helped a New York couple win a massive $9 billion verdict against prescription drug giants Takeda Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd. and Eli Lilly & Co. over cancer risks tied to the diabetes drug Actos. The jury award in a Louisiana federal court represents the second-largest verdict in the U.S. this year and is reported as the largest pharmaceutical liability verdict in history.
The Lanier Law firm earned a spot in the Texas Verdicts Hall of Fame based on a $1.45 million jury award in a case against an insurance brokerage firm that violated the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act and the Texas Insurance Code. Attorneys Lawrence “Larry” Wilson and Felicia Hubert led the firm’s winning team.
With offices in Houston, New York and Los Angeles, The Lanier Law Firm is committed to addressing client concerns with effective and innovative solutions in courtrooms across the country. The firm is composed of outstanding trial attorneys with decades of experience handling cases involving pharmaceutical liability, asbestos exposure, commercial litigation, product liability, maritime law, and sports and entertainment law.
