Understanding the business impact of litigation is critical when a company is contemplating filing or defending a lawsuit. Eric Probst examines the ramifications, the process, and the range of possible outcomes before counseling clients on whether to file a complaint or a responsive pleading, or to engage in pre-suit settlement discussions. With a constant eye towards his clients’ bottom line, Eric leverages his varied litigation experience, which includes handling multi-million dollar, complex commercial litigation matters; the defense of design professionals, owners, builders, general contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers in commercial, industrial, and residential construction defect, breach of contract, and consumer fraud disputes; commercial transportation companies in catastrophic personal injury cases; and manufacturing defendants in mass tort and one-off product liability personal injury and class action matters. His approach to litigation is not a “one size fits all,” but rather a client-specific approach based on the client’s pressure points. When a case is venued in New Jersey, Eric is often selected as local counsel due to his solid grasp of the nuances of New Jersey law and federal and state court procedures. He is a member of the Firm’s Litigation Practice Group.
