Hillary Campbell is an experienced litigator handling business and commercial litigation, as well as general litigation matters. A significant portion of Hillary’s practice is devoted to representing clients in products liability litigation where she has represented manufacturers of products ranging from tires to medical devices to consumer products. Her business litigation practice is just as varied and has involved representing businesses and individuals in cases involving allegations of fraud and civil conspiracy, as well as in business tort and contract dispute matters. Hillary’s practice is national in scope, and she has worked with clients on national litigation portfolios, as well as in multidistrict litigation (MDLs) and coordinated proceeding matters.

Hillary understands that every case is unique and when faced with litigation, her clients must consider and balance their business objectives and the costs of litigation, as well as any potential exposure. She works with her clients to tailor their strategy in each case accordingly, whether that means resolving a case before trial or trying the case to verdict. From start to completion, Hillary is experienced in all stages of litigation in both federal and state courts. Whether it is a single litigation matter or coordinated proceeding matters, Hillary has experience managing discovery, deposing lay and expert witnesses, drafting and arguing dispositive and other motions, negotiating settlements, and trying cases.
