WHAT CLIENTS SAY
“Jeff has a huge amount of experience with us.”
“He understands our business and our objectives deeply.”
MY CLIENT PHILOSOPHY
"My approach to clients is influenced by my experience as both outside counsel and as a former in-house attorney at a multinational corporation. As outside counsel, my approach is aimed at making our clients’ jobs easier and developing long-lasting relationships at both professional and personal levels. I take the time to understand clients’ businesses, their risk tolerance, their goals, and what is important to them in order to make a plan, but I am always ready to adapt. Clear and timely communication is absolutely critical, but it goes beyond just reporting the facts: You must also explain what those facts mean and what you recommend."
– Jeffrey R. Sandler
Jeffrey Sandler defends clients in tort litigation with an emphasis on product liability and toxic tort matters.
Jeff joined Tucker Ellis after serving for five years as assistant general counsel of a $17-billion international industrial and manufacturing company. There, he was responsible for all aspects of litigation management for North American claims against all product lines, with a primary emphasis on product liability (including asbestos) and additional responsibility for all other torts, including automobile, premises liability, and property damage claim and suits, as well as commercial and insurance matters. Jeff played an integral part in achieving a greater than 20% reduction in indemnity and defense costs through various strategies and the creation of standard work processes.
Jeff’s experience as an in-house counsel gives him a unique understanding of what clients look for in their outside counsel and how to create efficiencies to streamline legal work through standard work processes, lean staffing, and team building.
