As one of the largest, most important – and most dynamic – sectors in the world, the automotive industry presents unique challenges to litigation. At Donohue Brown, our lawyers understand the automotive industry, its issues, its language and its way of doing business. 

This knowledge and longtime experience drives our approach in successfully defending top global automakers and leading national auto components and parts makers.  In fact, one of the nation’s “Big Three” automakers named us one of their “go-to” counsel for product liability defense in surveys conducted by a prominent periodical directed to Fortune 500 in-house counsel.

A majority of our automotive industry practice involves taking product liability cases to trial – and winning them – in state and federal courts across the country.  We have also handled commercial litigation involving a variety of business disputes, including breach of contract, sales and delivery agreements, distribution and transportation issues and insurance coverage, among others.




DBMS attorneys continue to work remotely in compliance with the Governor's ongoing shelter in place order and to ensure the safety of our clients, employees and colleagues. In addition to focusing on the work entrusted to us by our clients before the Covid-19 pandemic, we are assisting our clients in protecting medical caregivers from being compelled to turn away from their patients to participate in litigation activities that can wait until the virus is under control.

We salute the medical providers who are valiantly risking their personal safety for the benefit of all of us. Thank you. You are heroes.
