Andrea Cox

Partner

Andrea Cox represents companies in the medical device, pharmaceutical, and construction industries in civil litigation challenging the safety of their products and their fulfillment of their contractual obligations. Drawing on nearly 20 years of experience handling cases in the courtroom, in arbitration and on appeal, Andrea helps these clients with claims involving products liability, breach of warranty, violation of deceptive and unfair practice laws, and consumer claims. She is experienced in claims involving catastrophic injury, wrongful death, and class actions, and bet-the-business litigation.
