HOUSTON, March 10 – LAWFUEL – The Law News Network – The Lanier Law Firm, the nationally recognized litigation powerhouse that recently won the nation’s first VIOXX- related jury verdict, has unveiled a new Web site at
“Traffic to our site has increased tremendously with the rapid growth of
our firm and the opening of our New York office,” says firm founder Mark
Lanier. “We wanted to make sure that our site was offering visitors the most
up-to-date information in the most user-friendly, state-of-the-art format. We
hope that the new site will be a good resource for clients, potential clients,
colleagues, and the news media.”
Visitors to the new site will be able to acquaint themselves with the
firm’s many areas of expertise, says Lanier.
“We’re best known for our civil litigation verdicts,” Lanier says. “But
we have a depth and breadth of practice outside the civil litigation arena
that may surprise many people.”
In particular, he says, the firm has a formidable commercial litigation
practice, as well as an experienced team of maritime lawyers and a significant
pharmaceutical liability practice.
“In addition to our well-known asbestos practice, we also have significant
experience in personal injury, product liability, and medical malpractice,”
In August, a Brazoria County, Texas, jury delivered a $253 million verdict
against pharmaceutical giant Merck & Co. on behalf of firm client Carol Ernst.
In Atlantic City, The Lanier Law Firm is currently representing another
plaintiff who contends that Merck didn’t provide sufficient warnings about the
dangers of taking VIOXX. In addition to VIOXX, The Lanier Law Firm represents
clients who have suffered side effects from the drugs Neurontin, Zyprexa,
Celebrex, Bextra, and Accutane.
