news | August 23, 2023

Hollingsworth LLP is pleased to announce that Brett F. Clements and Gary Feldon have become partners of the Firm.

Brett F. Clements defends clients in high-profile multidistrict litigation, mass torts, consumer class actions, and individual products liability cases alleging significant losses. He offers strategic counseling from case inception through trial, including on complex discovery issues, major dispositive motions, tactical trial preparation and, when appropriate, thoughtful resolution of cases. He is also experienced in expert depositions on complex and novel scientific issues, and in all facets of E-Discovery, including document collections, negotiation of ESI protocols, review strategy, and oversight of productions. Recognizing the interplay between the future of litigation and new technology, he closely follows developments in products liability and E-Discovery, focusing on the scientific and technical aspects of these fast-paced areas of law. Mr. Clements regularly represents pro bono clients through The Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless and serves as a Legal Clinic Ambassador. He received his J.D. from Fordham University School of Law and his B.A. in English and Government from Georgetown University.

Gary Feldon pairs high-level legal analysis with creative problem solving to achieve the best results for his clients. He often draws on his extensive government experience to help clients resolve complicated legal problems. Recently, he was part of the trial team that secured a complete defense verdict in a 28-day bellwether jury trial in the Circuit Court for Cook County, Ill., relating to ethylene oxide emitted from a medical device sterilization facility. During the trial, he wrote dispositive motions, argued evidentiary issues, drafted direct and cross examinations, and helped prepare corporate and expert witnesses to testify. He is also a key member of the Firm’s litigation team representing a large pharmaceutical company in multi-district products liability litigation alleging personal injury claims arising from an FDA-regulated medication. Mr. Feldon received his J.D. from Emory University School of Law where he was Executive Articles Editor for the Emory International Law Review, and his B.A. in Political Science and Philosophy from Columbia University.
