Bryan Cross
 

A trial lawyer for the past 20 years, Bryan Cross primarily defends Fortune 500 companies in state and federal courts throughout the United States and its territories. His practice focuses on product liability, construction defect, and complex commercial matters. He has also successfully handled premises, professional negligence, and asbestos-related litigation.

Bryan excels at defending matters involving catastrophic personal injuries, including quadriplegia and traumatic brain injury, as well as at handling "SWAT litigation" assignments where he is brought in shortly before trial to quickly organize and develop previously neglected files, identify and address strategic vulnerabilities, and minimize or eliminate downside risk in high-exposure cases.

Bryan serves as national trial counsel to Ford Motor Company. He is admitted to practice in Colorado, Michigan, and Texas.
