Following four years of contentious litigation, attorneys from Nix, Patterson & Roach, along with co-counsel, obtained an agreement from Fresenius Medical Care to settle the GranuFlo multi-district litigation for $250 million. NP attorneys Neil Smith and Chad Ihrig played an integral role in litigating the GranuFlo cases, including taking numerous depositions of scientific and medical experts and fact witnesses throughout the United States.
Nearly six months following the initial agreement between the parties, and significant additional negotiation, Fresenius Medical Care and counsel for Plaintiffs executed the formal settlement agreement providing for the payment by Fresenius Medical Care of $250 million to settle all claims against it arising from its GranuFlo and NaturaLyte dialysis products.
The plaintiffs are represented by NP partner Neil Smith and associate Chad Ihrig.
