Habib Nasrullah is a former Assistant United States Attorney who concentrates his practice on tort and complex commercial, banking and product liability litigation. Habib has substantial experience, both inside and outside of federal and state courtrooms, on behalf of some of the largest corporations in the country and the United States government.
Since his return to private practice in 2008, Habib has: 1) represented various pharmaceutical companies in a product liability multidistrict litigation; 2) represented one of America's leading financial institutions in litigation in Colorado; 3) represented one of the world's premier developers of sustainable communities in a commercial dispute against a governmental entity; and 4) conducted internal investigations and counseled clients on a variety of federal and state compliance issues.
In addition to trying cases for the United States in federal courts in Colorado, Arizona, and Texas, Habib has defended manufacturers of pharmaceuticals, automobiles, aerospace equipment, industrial equipment, consumer products, and uranium in litigation in some of the most defendant-unfriendly jurisdictions in the United States.
A representative sampling of cases that Habib has recently handled includes:
