St. Louis, March 8, 2018 – The international law firm Bryan Cave LLP today announced that Liz Blackwell has joined the firm as a partner in the Commercial Litigation and Product Liability Groups. Blackwell will reside in the St. Louis office.

Blackwell represents agricultural and consumer product manufacturers in high-stakes litigation in state and federal courts across the country.  Blackwell has spent nearly 20 years defending product manufacturers at trial in high-profile litigation across the nation.  She has defended clients against product design claims, false labeling and advertising claims, targeted marketing claims, content-based speech regulations, and consumer fraud claims in many cases, at both the trial court and appellate level.

“Liz is an outstanding addition to our strong Commercial Litigation Practice,” said Commercial Litigation Client Service Group Co-Leader Mark Leadlove. “She brings with her specialized experience in high-stakes product liability and false advertising litigation.”

Blackwell has served on national legal strategy teams for major consumer product manufacturers for many years. She is regularly called on to advise clients and develop legal strategy and briefing on complex federal preemption, First Amendment, punitive damages, and federal jurisdictional issues in complex product liability litigation.

“We are delighted to welcome Liz to the St. Louis office,” said Bob Newmark, managing partner of the St. Louis office. “Her broad experience and unwavering work ethic will be a strong complement to the firm’s Commercial Litigation and Product Liability Groups.”

Blackwell received her J.D. in 1998 from Vanderbilt University, her M.T.S. degree in 1995 from Harvard University, and her B.A., magna cum laude, in 1993 from Westminster College.
