Mr. Leger is a tireless advocate for the injured and has successfully litigated cases against many of the largest corporations in America and abroad. His dedication and passion for “fighting for those who cannot fight for themselves” has equated to successful jury verdicts and settlements in over 35 states. Mr. Leger’s experience is diverse and significant, as he has litigated and resolved over 1,000 individual cases nationwide as lead or co-lead counsel, including a $12 million jury verdict for a crash victim and a recent $8.2 million settlement in an automotive defect case.

Bard, Inc. hernia mesh cases filed in the U.S. and has performed extensive discovery on the defective nature of these products, including taking multiple 30(b)(6) depositions of C.R. Bard, Inc. and Davol, Inc. Mr. Leger is also currently lead counsel on several individual cases involving polypropylene hernia mesh that he is litigating nationally.

He has served on Multi-District Litigation (MDL) committees ranging from automotive defects to defective pharmaceutical products and is currently a member of the PSC for MDL No. 2846: In Re Davol, Inc./C.R.
