Your trusted local auto dealership would never sell you a used vehicle that employees knew had a hidden defect and was subject to a safety recall, right?

Key workers, new employment: Will there be post-departure issues?

We duly note at the proven Connecticut business law firm of Shepherd, Finkelman, Miller & Shah, LLP, in Middlesex, that many of our attorneys began their careers in the labor-law field and "are experienced with the full gamut of labor and employment matters."

Jury unsympathetic to Johnson & Johnson in product liability case

If the proverbial writing is on the wall for consumer product giant Johnson & Johnson, it doesn't paint a very rosy picture.

German automakers under siege in U.S. courts, Part 2
