James Tyrrell Joins Armstrong Teasdale in New Jersey

May 18, 2022 Press Releases

Armstrong Teasdale announces the addition of Partner James E. Tyrrell, Jr., to the firm’s Litigation practice group in New Jersey. He joins a roster of more than 370 attorneys across Armstrong Teasdale’s 16 offices internationally.

A member of the Mass Tort and Catastrophic Loss, Class Action and Antitrust practice areas, Tyrrell has served as lead counsel in the country’s highest profile cases including Agent Orange, Y2K, Deepwater Horizon and the World Trade Center litigation. In the tort arena, he acted as chief trial counsel in the landmark Agent Orange litigation – one of the largest mass tort cases in American history. After competing against the top 30 mass tort law firms in the country, he was selected to represent the primary defendant and 150 of its contractors in the World Trade Center litigation. Appointed by the Court as defense liaison counsel in 13,000 separate cases, Tyrrell became the principal spokesman for more than 500 defendants in the highest profile mass tort litigation of the century.

Tyrrell’s class action experience includes representation of one of the country’s largest telecommunication companies in the Y2K litigation (favorable settlement of more than 80,000 claims); a maritime enterprise in Deepwater Horizon (court ordered dismissal); and one of two major defendants in the national dialysis litigation (class certification denied).

His antitrust experience has ranged from price fixing litigation (corrugated containers, fine paper, silver futures) and monopolization (telecommunications and food industries) to mergers/acquisitions (Swedish manufacturer of heavy machinery) and interlocking directorates. He recently defended the generic drug price fixing antitrust litigation.

Tyrrell’s product liability and consumer fraud class action experience has covered chemicals (dioxin, PCBs, phenols), consumer products, drugs, medical devices, food and toys. He is a Harvard trained mediator and has facilitated the settlement of disputes from massive multi-district litigation to trade secret, contract, and intellectual property matters.

Prior to joining Armstrong Teasdale, Tyrrell served as the managing partner of the New Jersey office of an Am Law 10 firm, and as the regional managing partner of the New Jersey and New York offices of the leading political firm in Washington, D.C., as well as a member of its executive committee. He has chaired or co-chaired the Product Liability and Mass Tort Practice Groups of four major law firms. Under Tyrrell’s leadership, the New Jersey office was named by independent organizations as the Best Place to Work of all large businesses in the state.
