Overview

A staunch advocate at trial or in settlement negotiations, Alix defends clients in asbestos litigation.

Alix is extensively experienced with all phases of asbestos litigation, from inception through resolution, including pleadings, deposition, discovery, investigations, and drafting and arguing motions, including appellate motions and briefs. She provides both nationwide and local defense for major clients and is known for devising novel legal theories and strategies to remove clients from cases.

While she has focused on toxic tort in recent years, Alix’s broad background litigating securities, contract, labor and employment, intellectual property, and pharmaceutical product liability matters has made her extensively familiar with procedure and strategy. Alix also draws on her time representing plaintiffs in medical device product liability cases at a previous firm. The experience helps her understand opposing counsel’s goals, plans and strategies, often leading to faster resolutions in the cases she defends today.

Alix is particularly passionate about the intensive research required in the asbestos field and loves to be the one to find the argument that will win a case. She also appreciates that toxic tort cases usually allow her to fully get to know clients, learning about their products and business structure. Alix aims for clients to view her as a true part of their company.
