Philip E. Holladay specializes in defending a wide range of clients in high-exposure commercial disputes, product liability and tort cases, class action lawsuits, and qui tam actions. A partner in our Atlanta office, Phil leads our Automotive and Transportation initiative and the Tort & Environmental practice’s Transportation subgroup.
With more than 30 years of experience representing clients and trying cases in state and federal courts around the country, Phil’s practice today focuses on clients in the transportation, healthcare and financial services industries.
He is frequently called on to handle matters for clients pending in jurisdictions that are hostile to corporate defendants, and has represented clients in cases in Alabama, Arkansas, California, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia and Puerto Rico.
Phil has briefed and argued cases in both state and federal appellate courts. He regularly confronts the important recurrent issues in today’s commercial disputes and tort cases, including class certification; whistle-blower allegations; jurisdictional and venue disputes; efforts to exclude expert witnesses and testimony on Daubert grounds; attempts to depose senior executives and counsel; efforts to obtain privileged documents; and attempts to obtain discovery from turncoat former employees.
