OVERVIEW

Joe Fullenkamp represents businesses and individuals in the resolution of commercial disputes, product liability defense, construction litigation, transportation contracts and litigation, and insurance coverage matters. Joe’s experience spans virtually all phases of litigation, including discovery, pre-trial motions and trial, and appellate counsel in courts throughout the United States.

For more than three decades, Joe has litigated product liability lawsuits. He has served on national product liability teams representing Fortune 500 companies and other businesses in litigation throughout the country. His clients have included manufacturers and distributors of home appliances, kitchen appliances and utensils, manufacturing equipment and consumer goods.

Joe has also represented owners, designers, general contractors and subcontractors in construction disputes and litigation. He has handled matters involving manufacturing facilities, solar projects, hotels, dormitories, parking ramps, hospitals and concrete. His experience includes advising, negotiating and litigating the range of issues that can arise before, during and after actual construction. In addition, he litigates virtually all aspects of transportation law and also negotiates carrier and broker contracts.

Joe focuses on identifying the central issues of a claim that will affect the end result. He seeks to understand each client’s non-legal goals early on, because those often determine the outcome of the dispute. After decades of practice, Joe remains committed to delivering honed skill in predicting possible case outcomes and adjusting his arguments and negotiation tactics accordingly. Judges, mediators and opposing counsel have been known to comment on Joe’s calm demeanor, patience and preparation.
