National Recognition – True Litigators
As true trial lawyers, our lawyers are a constant presence at the courthouse and go to trial with a frequency not often seen in today’s legal climate.  Firm trial teams have spent weeks and months in trial numerous times in complex cases involving personal injury, death and catastrophic injury, commercial disputes, environmental litigation, as well as arguing appeals in various appellate courts.  We have achieved precedent-setting results and made new law, with results from our cases published, cited to and relied upon by other courts and practitioners around the country.  The depth of actual courtroom experience, bench strength and proven trial record have made Baker • Wotring LLP a repeat choice of sophisticated clients who need experienced, tried-and-true litigators to handle their complex, high-stakes litigation.
 
Our Firm handles a wide variety of litigation, ranging from individual personal injury cases to complex multi-party litigation on both a regional and national basis.  Our cases involve almost every area of practice, including unfair trade practices, commercial disputes, breach of contract actions, personal injury, healthcare liability, medical devices, catastrophic explosion and toxic torts, among other areas.  Our environmental litigators, who frequently collaborate with the regulatory team on matters that are both in litigation and under regulatory enforcement, offer an extremely effective combination of integrated environmental cost recovery and property damage litigation experience.
