Gail McLemore Rodgers

Gail Rodgers concentrates her practice in pharmaceutical and medical device litigation, mass torts and products liability.

Gail has extensive experience in a wide variety of state and federal litigation, including providing strategic advice at each stage of a litigation, managing national discovery teams, depositions, motions practice, including Daubert challenges and implementation of national resolution programs. She has represented a significant number of DLA Piper’s Fortune 100 clients, including some of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world.

Gail acts as litigator and litigation manager handling individual matters in a lead capacity while also supervising and coordinating the work of attorneys drawn from multiple outside law firms. She also has significant experience as resolution counsel and has coordinated a team of medical specialists in the evaluation of individual and class action claims, resulting in the resolution of thousands of claims. Relevant engagements include litigation relating to the prescription medications Celebrex and Bextra, Omniscan, Phen-Fen and Propulsid.

Gail handled over a hundred medical malpractice actions against a bankrupt hospital. In doing so, she negotiated dozens of multi-million dollar claims resulting in settlements for a fraction of the amounts claimed or outright dismissals of the claims.

Gail also has experience litigating cases alleging severe personal injury due to other types of products such as boilers, bicycles and faucets.
