Charles H. Moellenberg Jr

Chuck Moellenberg has extensive experience in the nationwide coordination of major product liability cases and in commercial and business litigation. Chuck's product liability experience encompasses products ranging from paints and chemicals, toys, trains, recreational vehicles, automobile air bags and restraint systems, and consumer electrical appliances. He appears in state and federal courts throughout the U.S. and coordinates the defense for clients with other co-defendants in joint defense groups.

From years of coordinating nationwide litigation, Chuck has considerable knowledge in complex, emerging legal issues. These include market share and other collective liability theories, concert of action and conspiracy laws, public and private nuisance, medical monitoring, continuing duty to warn, class actions, preemption, and liability for trade association activities. He works extensively with legal scholars and a wide range of experts such as pediatricians, child psychologists, epidemiologists, statisticians, toxicologists, industrial hygienists, warnings, historians, and economists. In highly visible product liability litigation, he works with crisis management firms to speak with the media and formulate media strategy.

Chuck is a member of the Product Liability Advisory Council. He is coauthor of the "Multi-District Litigation" chapter of Business and Commercial Litigation in Federal Courts (West Pub., 1998). He has written and spoken on defending claims alleging failure to warn, public nuisance, obesity, and state attorney general litigation and has written on First Amendment protections for corporate speech and re-analyzing raw data to attack epidemiology studies. Chuck is an adjunct professor at the University of Pittsburgh Law School teaching a course on advanced trial evidence. He coordinates the Trial Practice in the Pittsburgh Office.
