Harrington, Foxx, Dubrow &Canter, LLP, has been a leader in tort liability defense since 1938. The firm has represented numerous Fortune 500 companies in a wide variety of cases. Our clients have relied on our attorneys to handle complex and catastrophic injury cases in State and Federal Courts.

We have handled products liability suits involving automobiles, buses, heavy-duty trucks, water craft, construction equipment, heavy equipment, oilfield equipment, propane containment and delivery systems, household consumer goods, power tools, firearms, medical instruments and medical devices.

The firm's vast experience in handling premises liability cases includes representing major retailers, apartment owners, land developers and home owners. The issues have included matters from pedestrian slipping and tripping hazards to toxic exposure and nuisance claims. Other examples of cases we frequently handle include claims of inadequate security, false arrest and battery. Related to our premises liability practice is our defense of ADA claims involving public accommodation defendants.

Our transportation cases include major bus accidents, trucking accidents, and private automobile accidents. In addition to accident reconstruction and causation issues involved in most transportation cases, we have been involved in significant appellate cases concerning liability based on the status of the vehicle operator. Examples of such issues include, whether the driver was in the course and scope of employment, whether the driver had an agency relationship with the defendant or whether the driver was a permissive user. In addition to the personal injury cases, we have handled cargo and Cartwright Act cases.

We have extensive trial experience in both State and Federal courts throughout California.
