As a member of the firm's mass tort litigation practice group, Allison has extensive experience in complex litigation, including tort claims, product liability, negligence, and contract disputes.
That experience includes drafting pleadings, preparing and responding to discovery requests, arguing motions, conducting interviews with fact and expert witnesses, preparing for and conducting depositions, drafting substantive and evidentiary motions, preparing materials for trial, trial support, and participating in mediation.
In addition to handling tort claims, Allison has litigated contract cases involving breaches of indemnity agreements, finder's fee agreements, services agreements and sales agreements. She has also defended clients in tobacco litigation, product liability cases, consumer fraud litigation, and antitrust disputes. She served on the trial team in United States v. Philip Morris, a 10-month trial involving civil RICO claims brought by the Department of Justice against the tobacco industry.
Allison has also advised clients on regulatory matters including the Administrative Procedure Act, transportation regulations, lobbying disclosure requirements, postal regulations, and telemarketing regulations.
