Mr. Kallish is a shareholder in the firm's Business Litigation Group and focuses his practice on complex disputes, employment litigation, class actions, products liability, catastrophic and wrongful death litigation, antitrust, railroad law and securities litigation.
He has developed a unique niche in taking over and turning around high-dollar, high-exposure litigation. He consults for, and often represents, insurance companies and corporate clients, helping them understand the strategic implications of ongoing litigation and whether options or actions are available or have been overlooked. His work and recommendations have resulted in millions of dollars in savings for clients. In some instances, based on this insight, companies have settled early or litigated more aggressively by pursuing new, previously unasserted claims, joining third-parties and other activities.
