For more than 30 years, Dick Hansen has been helping businesses, from Fortune 100 companies to small local manufacturing companies, successfully remove themselves from controversies and lawsuits through pre-filing resolution, settlement mediation, arbitration or jury trial. Dick primarily resolves matters involving consumer class action, technology, healthcare, product liability, sexual abuse and complex business torts, and has also been a mediator in injury related matters. He believes the best defense is to avoid any form of litigation in the first place, and helps clients review contractual agreements and product warnings to accomplish just that.
As Schwabe’s former Business and Product Litigation Practice Group leader, Dick has managed and overseen a wide variety of cases, tried more than 80 cases to jury verdict and resolved hundreds of others.
Through his work with manufacturing clients both small and large, Dick is deeply familiar with his clients’ products and the types of claims they often face. He understands the insurance side of these claims, the kind of expert that will be necessary and how to manage the litigation effectively and cost-efficiently.
Helping healthcare providers focus on what they do best
Dick has resolved many disputes for healthcare providers, from controversies between provider clinics, hospitals and providers, and providers and health insurers; to conflicts among hospitals themselves. In this growing and increasingly litigious area, Dick works with clients to get to the bottom of the problem and get out of a situation as quickly as possible.
