Chad Ihrig is a trial attorney who has spent more than 15 years representing clients throughout the country in a wide variety of matters, including mass torts involving defective medical devices and pharmaceutical drugs, catastrophic accidents, insurance bad faith, business litigation, trade secret, fraud, and general civil litigation.
Chad began his career as a medical malpractice defense lawyer representing doctors, hospitals, and nursing homes in professional negligence actions. Prior to joining Nix Patterson in 2012, Chad was a partner in the Oklahoma City law firm of Nelson, Roselius, Terry & Morton. While there, he worked alongside the team at Nix Patterson representing insurance consumers from all 50 states in class actions against more than 50 insurance companies in Arkansas related to the underpayment of overhead and profit in homeowners’ insurance claims, and the use of the Colossus software in the adjustment of personal injury claims. These historic insurance class action litigations required more than 8 years of hard work, which involved numerous federal and state appeals, hundreds of millions of pages of documents, and hundreds of contested motions. These class actions were recognized as achieving remarkable results for the class—up to 100% recovery—by the Judges overseeing the cases. These important cases resulted in more than 45 nationwide class action settlements, providing substantial relief to class members and generating significant attorneys’ fees for our co-counsel.
As an attorney with Nix Patterson, Chad’s clients currently include military servicemen and women and veterans, injured individuals, harmed consumers, victims of defective pharmaceutical drugs and medical devices, and multi-national corporations.
