RELEASED: MARCH 8, 2012 SAN FRANCISCO – Jeffrey A. Kaiser and Lawrence J. Gornick have opened their new firm, Kaiser Gornick LLP, focusing on representing individuals who have been harmed by defective pharmaceutical and medical devices, as well as individuals who have developed mesothelioma from asbestos exposure.

The San Francisco firm of Kaiser Gornick LLP offers unsurpassed experience to clients throughout the U.S. The lawyers have more than 100 years of combined experience litigating and settling complex defective product and fraudulent practice cases. The attorneys at Kaiser Gornick LLP have collectively obtained more than $400 million on behalf of their clients.

Kaiser Gornick LLP attorneys offer a strong combination of experience and resources to represent clients in high-value and complex cases on a contingency basis. The firm relies on its internal resources to front all costs of litigation so that limited financial means don’t preclude an injured victim from pursuing action against a large corporation.

Jeff Kaiser and Larry Gornick are two of the leading product liability lawyers in the county. Jeff Kaiser was an attorney with Brobeck, Phleger and Harrison from 1992 to 2003 and the managing partner of Levin Simes Kaiser Gornick LLP from 2003 to 2011. Jeff has litigated over 1,000 mesothelioma cases in the past 20 years and represents clients throughout the U.S. In addition to this trial experience, he has argued appeals in both state and federal court. He has personally negotiated hundreds of millions of dollars in settlements on behalf of individuals harmed by defective products.

Larry Gornick was an attorney with Brobeck, Phleger & Harrison from 1988-2002, a partner with Paul Hastings Janofsky & Walker from 2002 to 2006, and a partner with Levin Simes Kaiser & Gornick from 2006 to 2011. Larry is a trial lawyer who focuses on product liability and consumer class actions. He has tried cases in courts throughout the country and has been one of the lead plaintiff attorneys in several mass torts. Most recently, U.S. District Judge David A. Katz appointed Larry to the Plaintiffs Steering Committee for the federal court lawsuits related to DePuy ASR hip implant products.
