Brian Gross has an exceptional track record of finding client-oriented solutions to complex legal issues. Drawing on two decades of courtroom experience, he handles a broad spectrum of litigation, including environmental litigation, products liability, food and beverage liability claims, asbestos and other toxic tort litigation, pharmaceutical and medical device claims, and business disputes for clients across the United States. He is accomplished in the defense of both conventional and novel claims, including those involving per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).
As counsel for several entities facing enforcement actions relating to multiple contaminants, including PFAS, Brian develops strategies not only to eliminate or mitigate the liability of his clients, but also to recover the costs associated with investigation and remediation. In addition, Brian counsels clients concerning environmental contamination and potential liabilities that may arise from industrial, manufacturing and other processes. This includes the development of programs for compliance with federal, state and local environmental regulations and the counseling of companies concerning environmental issues for corporate transactions.
As National Coordinating Counsel for multiple companies, Brian develops defense themes, prepares expert and corporate witnesses, selects and manages local counsel, tries cases, and handles settlement negotiations. As a result of these efforts, many of his clients have experienced a decrease in the defense and indemnity costs associated with their defense.

He invests time to understand your business, industry and values, and to develop strategies tailored to your priorities, and minimize the impact on your business reputation, resources, and operations.
