Kevin McCoy is a tested trial lawyer. His practice includes the prosecution and defense of business litigation and complex claims, and the defense of products liability and toxic tort claims. His matters have ranged from defending small business owners to handling bet-the-business claims for major corporations.
Kevin practices under the mantra that “the best way to resolve a case is to prepare it for trial from the start.” He handles cases in all phases of litigation, from early negotiated resolutions through bench and jury trials and appellate review.
He also is experienced in handling late engagements to triage cases when the original case plan has taken the case off track for resolution, or trial, and the case needs to be repositioned in a short time frame. He has been called upon to provide a fresh set of eyes to cases with high exposure risk, and to participate in mock trials on key issues that will control case outcomes.
Kevin dedicates a considerable amount of his practice developing legal solutions for vendors that provide camera technology to law enforcement throughout the United States. In that role, he develops strategies responsive to the litany of legal challenges directed at this burgeoning technology.
He also serves as trial and appellate counsel in multiple state actions and federal putative class actions challenging the use of camera technology by those who seek damages after that technology has caught them breaking the law.
As part of his products liability defense practice, Kevin has gained significant experience litigating products liability and toxic tort cases for clients in the automotive, tobacco, and asbestos industries. This experience includes managing mass tort litigation across multiple jurisdictions, developing trial themes, and taking discovery of fact and expert witnesses.
Kevin has served as counsel to component part manufacturers in the automotive industry in cases in which he developed expert witnesses and conducted crash investigations to identify defenses to product defect and enhanced injury claims. He also routinely defends a substantial number of cases involving allegations of injuries relating to asbestos exposure.
