Representative Matters

    • Served on the plaintiffs’ nationwide class action team who settled what International Business Times called a “landmark legal concession” from gun manufacture Taurus International, in which Taurus agreed to repair or replace defective firearms as part of a class-action settlement valued at up to $239 million; settlement terms included a buyback or replacement of almost one million pistols (Carter v. Taurus International Mfg., et al.)

Sallyport Global Holdings, Inc.)
