About Me

Jim Hooper helps medical, scientific, and technology-based companies defend tort suits that often involve pharmaceuticals, medical devices, or asbestos. Jim enjoys helping his clients plan and execute efficient, winning litigation strategies and persuasive arguments in complex matters at the intersection of law and science. Jim considers the most challenging and rewarding aspect of his practice demystifying scientific concepts, technologies, and regulatory processes to help courts and juries reach correct legal conclusions about product risks and benefits, and the propriety of corporate conduct.
